    For me i don't like cropped cams, even though you can get more tele. Full frames can get a wider view and don't have to calculate focal length. Example a 200mm lens gives u exactly 200mm.

    calculation is easy to do. only takes a few seconds. the converted values for lenses i have already memorised. for my wide angle needs, the super cheap ef-s 18-55 does the job nicely. hehehehe

    D70 does not have any LCD issues. The latest model is D70s. You should test both before you decide. You'll like D70s straight away if you handle one. But if you have decided on Canon, get 350D.

    30D has several improvements over the 20D which is very gd and convenient. I suppose 30D should cost around $2K+ while 20D is set to drop. If you do not really need all the new improvements and the larger screen (same LCD as 5D) then buy the 20D.

    fullframe brings back dreaded memories of the old film days when your 200mm cannot reach as far as 320mm, and your 400mm cannot reach as far as 640mm

    I've the same concept as u. I'm still using film and film has never disappointed me. In future i may switch to digital once i've earned enough but will choose full frame DSLRs instead. Currently targetting the 5D.

    you'll probably go for 20D, IF you've tried both.... (350)

    but for now.. go 30D..

    I agree....the 100mm macro dun need tripod, same for the 180mm one, unless you are using the MP-E 65mm...tripod is a must.
