What I currently own:
Canon 24 / 1.4L
Next up: 14 / 2.8L II (would prefer a 17 / 1.8L or even 17 / 1.4L)
Canon 580EX II, ST-E2
My ideal lens collection ('*' = Does Not Currently Exist):
14-28 / 4L *
My ideal 'realistic' lens collection ('*' = Do Not Own):
16-35 / 2.8L II *
What I really hope for in the next-gen 5D:
1) A few more AF points, all high precision and f/2.8, as well as more spread out
OK, about TAv mode. Here's what it does:
You specify both the f-ratio and the shutter speed -- the camera chooses the ISO. You also select the floor and ceiling ISOs, and the priority safety shift when they are reached (f-ratio or shutter speed).
How I want the WB set to work:
First, change the Direct Print Button to a custom button. Then, I can assign it to Set Custom WB. With a single press, the camera changes from whatever WB mode it's in, into AWB, takes the picture *without focusing*, and sets the new custom WB. Simple, isn't it?
My ideal DSLR:
1. 40x60 sensor
The lenses I would want for this amazing machine (35mm FF equivalents in parentheses):
20 / 2.8 (12 / 1.8)
My ideal complement to a DSLR:
A compact digicam with an 8 MP 4x sensor, 4-12.5 / 2 lens (16-50 / 8 in terms of 35mm FL/DOF equivalents) that completely retracts into the body, IS (either in-lens or on the sensor), custom selectable AF point(s), instant AF and zero 'shutter' lag, RAW (duh), on-demand polarizer, HD video, very weather resistant, flip-out LCD, instant wake, no larger (and preferably smaller, if possible) than a G9.
