My suggestion

I would take a long look at the Nikon D7000. I have the D7000 and also the Nikon 1V1. The 1V is a dandy little camera, but only 10 megapixel and it gets "very hot" very quickly in hot weather.

The D7000 is an incredible value right now. It has a great 16 megapixel sensor, one of the best dynamic range cameras around, certainly for the money. It has excellent autofocus and is feature rich. It lets you have two SD cards which can be used in a variety of ways.

I also have Olympus E3, Canon EOS 1D, 1DS, D30, 10D, 40D, etc., but my pick for what you want to do is the Nikon D7000.

Best regards,
