    How about lens cap on? ISO 25600? See banding can go WOW.

    Good camera doesn't mean good photos.

    Likewise, bad camera doesn't mean bad photos.

    Actually, Pentax weather sealing is very similar.

    Any comment?
    If you are on a tighter budget, Pentax takes the cake. If you have more to allocate...Nikon D300 is more than you need. Unless you have a lot of $$$ to spend, Canon's mid-range products isn't exactly value-for-money.

    I share my thoughts with some memeber here that, if you foresee yourself will stay on as hobbyist, Pentax would give you value for money package. Go C & N if you plan to go pro/make money out of it as both have the complete range of accessories.

    Why only that 3. What about Olympus? The E-520 comes with IS built in and the range of semi pro lenses won't burn a hole..plus they are weather all weather proof. But is a weather proof body is required, that E-3 is also weather proof.

    That's the silliest thing I've ever read. Olympus and Minolta/Sony have a complete range as well, and are used by pros.

    Heck, I know a pro who made a killing taking pics with an old Leica rangefinder.

    so when war/street photographers sell photos made from a p&s.. they are not making money.. where you got the above idea, i do not know, but suffice to say , it's definitely not reliable - both source and idea, anyways.

    i second that i love those yummy pancakes :P too bad i am using a nikon which pancakes are rare and costly. just one to play la.. later on wanan switch also easy.

    u can always add a battery grip for 450D. more comfortable

    Nikon and Canon are big guns in the market.If you have problems with your cam, there are more people out there to offer valuable advices. To me this is one of the very important factor that affect my decision when purchasing Cam.

    I guess you've never hung out with the Sony or Olympus users then.

    I do agree with you. Since the TS mentioned 3 system, my bad for not mentioning other systems.

    Yes. All cameras are capable to produce pro photos in the right hand. But for pro, I belief with choices, they will usually choose the easier path. My thought though.

    I believe they do not choose the easier path. They choose what they need. They choose what works for them. Correct me if I'm wrong professionals.
