    Talking My impending camera purchase. Advise needed...

    Im have a budget of $1300 for a purchase of digicam. Will be getting it at late July. I dont mind getting a second hand DC as long as it fits my budget and requirements.
    Below are my min requirements for the DC:

    1. >= 3 megapixels
    2. Full manual with A,S,P mode
    3. Hot-shoe
    4. Good night-shot (as noiseless as possible)
    5. Fast AF (need to take taekwondo sparring thats why need fast AF)
    6. Capable of great macros
    7. Uses CF as main storage
    8. Allows add-on filters and lens

    My budget of $1300 will also include the purchase of:

    1. 2x +4 Close-up filter
    2. Circular polariser filter
    3. Starshape filter
    4. UV filter
    5. Lens Hood
    6. Ext Flash (need recommendation)
    7. CF 256MB (need recommendation)
    8. Lens adapter (need recommendation)
    9. Tripod (need recommendation)
    10. Cam bag (need recommendation)

    I hope my budget is enough for all these.
    Thanks guys!

    Fuji S602.

    Fits all of the above to a T and proven in the same exact circumstances.

    If not, grab a Canon D30 and 50mm f1.7 lens and work from there.

    Im actually considering S602z, but I hope to hear other suggests from you guys. Thanks for the D30 suggestion. But I think its outta my budget since I hope to get a zoom lens if im getting DSLR.

    Actually you only need a 50mm or 85mm prime if you shoot from the edge of the 12x12m. The D30 has a 1.6x focal length multiplier.

    With the 602, you will be forced to use 1MP ISO800/1600 modes most of the time.

    Zerstorer, are you from TKD? hehe..

    anyway, im getting my cam mainly for nightshots, street photography and macro....not so much on sparring...and I heard that fuji's 602z iso160 is already very noisy...
