  1. I think around $2000 is my limit, maybe alittle over but I'd like to stay around that area. I keep reading stuff about the 20d and I keep seeing "semi-professional" If I'm going to upgrade from my "semi-professional" sony 828 I will want to get something that's better than semi-professional if not I might as well stick with my sony.

    But good thing about the 20d the price is falling like crazy. I've seen BRAND NEW 20d's with warranty with a buy it now price of $1100. That's insane.

    But I saw that the D200 is 10megapixels and it is going for around $2000+/- on ebay brand new :bigthumb:

    And the only thing I know about the 35d is that it's coming out to compete with the D200 and it's the same amount of megapixels and whatever else I donno. I can only imagine the price will be about the same as the D200.


    Oh well help me pick!
    :x:

    You're tired of waiting and one option in the poll is an unreleased camera...? Something doesn't add up.

    Where is your budget for a lens or did you not realize these cameras don't have fixed lenses like your F828? :bowrofl:

  14. because that's what you have right?

    I think I'm kinda leaning towards that but I hate how Nikon is out numbered here on OT :mamoru: Yea I know it's a shitty reason to not want the camera but :dunno:

    Rebel XT or (350D if you want to sound cooler ) w/ kit lens and a Canon 70-200mm F/2.8L and then maybe a wide angle prime lens for $2000.
     
  18. :mamoru: When I said $2000 is my ceiling I meant that is the price range I'm willing to pay for the body itself.

    Well shit, why not get a 'real' pro body then. Used ones are in abundance. Why go for consumer bodies when you can look like a pro? But wait, you already look like a pro. :bowdown:
     

  20. yea whatever :rolleyes:

    How much do you want to spend in total? If you get a D200, then don't have any money to buy any lenses, I would say get a Canon 20D and a good L lens. If money's not that much of an object, get a Canon EOS-1D Mark II for around $3500.
     
  22. Why are D200's going for $2,000 + on ebay when ritzcamera.com sells them for only $1700 with free shipping?

    Is ritzcamera.com on back order or are they a ripoff or something? :confused:

    anyone buy from ritzcamera.com before?
     

  23. I'm trying to spend $2,000 - $2,500 total. So I figure if I get a camera for $2,000 I will have $500 for a lens. I already have enough memory and a tripod. All I will have to get is a flash which at this point can wait.

    Oh shit I forgot about my tax return :run: 1D here I come :coold: jk
