Re: Looking for advice on buying a semi-professional camera

I've seen NY Times photojournalist Joao da Silva shoot Fujifilm X-Pros in the field somewhere in Africa. If it's good enough for him...

But he grew up in the film era so Fuji is a great way for him to go. I think DSLRs allow you to have faster control in a fast moving situation. In my experience as an editorial photographer with a Nikon D300 I only needed a superzoom and one or two fast primes to cover every gig, street demo & conference.

My reasoning was to cover all focal lengths with a high-IQ zoom and fixed focal-lengths for low light.
