It is the lens that is the killer, not the body :lol: :lol:

So we are back to the same old vexed issue... :rofl:

Well for the $500, 500g camera that I have, I'm quite happy with these images... :lol:

Thanks, Gan. KC is right. Those tripods alone is too damn heavy for me never mind the rest of the equipment.
Unless I can get a camera caddy to do the carrying.

I can get a photo caddy to carry all that stuff.

Aside from weight/portability issues, for generalists like myself who take interest in nature subjects near & far, prosumers are also more versatile ie. having both macro and zoom functions, so that one can take a butterfly and a bird within seconds of each other, without having to lug around 2 sets of lenses, and taking time to change them (and thereby potentially losing the subject in the process)...:thumbsdown:

Good advice guys!

I have recently gotten more seriously into nature photography and have moved away from an entry level Nikon SLR/ kit lens and have chosen Canon's equipment... not an inexpensive foray.

I found a website www.cameralabs.com to be both very informative and useful - their comparisons between SLR's in each price range was seemingly impartial and informative.

Hope this helps :D
