    There's a rumor circulating around that Canon has an EF-S 18-200 IS in the works. This started when a credible shop (like a B&H Photo for Europe) accidentally "leaked" a page stating that lens and...

    I don't own a D200 or a Nikon for that matter, but being an owner of a 40D, I urge you to spend time holding a D200 and getting a feel for it. It's a significantly larger and heavier camera with more...

    I think you goofed up at the end of the review when listing out mid-range DSLR's as competition. The XSI is a very worked out entry level camera, but it's definitely not a mid-range one in build,...

    People here are recommending bodies and their relative costs, but don't forget that you're buying into a whole system, not just one camera.

    If budget is a concern, take a long and hard look at both Tokina lenses (11-16 and 12-24) in addition to the Sigma. They're both well-liked and the latter one, which has been around for a while, is...

    Tokina 11-16 vs. Canon 10-22 and Tokina 12-24

    For lower end cameras, the starting price doesn't say much about the long term prospects of the camera's sale and impact.

    Thanks for the compliments. :)

    It was fairly busy that night so nobody was thrown out, but on our way back down, I did see the ranger pull up, so I suppose that they might be doing that.
