    I would rather have the compositional flexibility of a zoom. I also love shooting at wide angles, and I would find 28mm very limiting. 95% of the shots I take with my 10-22 are taken at 10mm.

    Crop sensors aren't going to disappear anytime soon. Camera companies have sold far too many crop sensor bodies and lenses to suddenly discontinue them. Granted, Nikon has made their full frame...

    The radio popper Jr's won't do TTL. Not much info has been released, don't expect much more functionality than cactus triggers, just a lot more reliability.

    I think that what Nikon has done with the D3 and D300 is making it very tough for canon to develop a new 5D that is feature competitive with crop senors, and won't cannibalize sales of the 1 series....

    Here is another way to look at it. Buying low end EF lenses isn't going to save you any money when it comes time to upgrade to a full frame camera. To get the most out a full frame camera, you need...

    Unless you can stretch your budget enough to get the 24-105 F/4 L ($1050), or the 24-70 f/2.8 L ($1150) , or the 70-200 F/4L IS ($1050), then I would suggest sticking with one of those 3.

    If $900...

    In general, cheap, light weight, and sturdy don't go together, but based on what you wrote, the Induro A114 (about $120), or the slightly heavier A214 sounds like a perfect match. You might want to...

    I have the Canon 10-22, probably 90% of my shots are taken at 10mm where it is 1/2 stop faster than the Tokina. If there was a 10mm prime, I would jump on it. My main lens is a 17-55 f/2.8, and...
