    Would you get an expensive and good body or a good lens?

    Good lens for moi~~~ The limiting factor is always the lens most of the time. If the body out weight the lens, I will go with the body

    nobody would want a 10k body with a $500 lens right? due to insufficient funds. rather get a $500 body and a 10k lens?

    Considering I prefer to shoot fast stuff like sports, I'd go for the body before lens. Of course that's because I already have decent lenses.

    Every 1k on one body should equal to 2k for lenses. ie 450D, then get 17-40L + 70-2004L, 1DsmkIII then get.. lol
