    well I'm selling my d70s and looking to upgrade. I know places to look but just want to cover all the bases.

    and here are some pictures I've taken with it. I need a better quality camera and I want to get into wedding pictures as well. This camera is ok but isn't cutting it.

    here are some pictures with the lens that came with the kit

    For light like that, you don't even have the right type of lens. Try fixing that first, then talk about getting a new camera. A new camera isn't going to help your pictures if you don't know how to use it. Your 90 f/2.8 is ok, but try getting something like an 85 f/1.8 or a 50 f/1.4 (f/1.8) and move closer to the stage.

    Mind telling me what filter holding system that is, what size adapter rings those are, and what the two square filters are (I'm assumming grad ND filters of some sort).

    I might be interested.

    Thanks for typing all that out, but sorry, not what I'm looking for. They looked a little bigger in the pictures.

    Nice pics, I'm a JM fan myself. :h5: Try getting a prime lens like I said before you go off spending a shit load on a new camera.

    These are from a Cartel concert I went to last week. Shot with my 30d and my cheap ass 50mm f/1.8:

    Agreed...Id say invest in glass, not a new body. A 5D with a shitty kit lens isn't gonna be any better than the D70 with the 18-70.
