About me:

first camera was my dad's spare Minolta rangefinder (AF-1 or something?), then a Minolta X-570 in my teens, then a Canon EOS-3 after college, lately a bunch of Minolta's for cave photography, gobs of flashbulbs, a Toho 4x5 monorail w/ some sweet optics, a Canon S50, then an S80, sold the EOS-3, and bought a K10D to take caving. Now have the FA50/1.4, FA77/1.8 LTD, DA50-200, Sigma 10-20, and AF540FGZ flash. Just about done with Pentax after the disappointing performance , miserable autofocus, unusable flash, and slow-as-molasses release of the new 16-50, so I'm looking at a D800. I'm still p*ssed at Canon for not releasing a 5D (and now 5DII) with real weathersealing- for gawd's sake, it was like 3 times the price of an EOS-1V when it came out !?! At least Panny has satisfied my high iso P&S lust with the LX3. Now that I finally have one let me say this is my favorite compact camera ever!! Just awesome- always gets the shot, a low light dream that Canon just can't touch. New G11 (and S90) and the lens is still slower than the LX3. replaced LX-3 with LX-7 after dropping LX-3. First camera I dropped in a looong time.
