    btw im not really new to this site here, have been browsing here and there but rarely post.
    However, im telling myself that i should be pro-active here so as to get along, communicate and exchange pointers with the seniors and juniors here.

    anyway kinda new to photography and has developed a huge interest and desire into photography.
    i have been eyeing nikon D90, D300/s and canon EOS 7D. hope to be enlightened by the seniors here.
    thank u for your time.

    How much do you know about the cameras you have shortlisted?
    In terms of pricing, ergonomics, etc...? They're all good cameras.
    I encourage you to open your mind to include the other DSLR brands, which offer good value for money.
    Give us some information then MAYBE we can help you narrow down your shortlist.. I stress maybe because sometimes it's hard to strike off camera models so easily.
    Exploring! :)

    for what?
    1) Camera body only?
    2) Camera + lens(es)?
    3) Camera + lens(es) + flash + tripod + filters + bag + dry cabinet?

    you do realize that D300s or 7D alone will approach the upper limit of your budget right?
    Then what are you gonna do? Buy cheapo lenses and forgo the dry cabinet?

    Would be better to go for a slightly lower model. Any reason why you shortlist 7D and D300s anyway? You wanted such a heavy body? Or you need the fps speed?

    body only.

    Do your homework and check the Clubsnap Price Guide for estimated price.

    Note: All price stated is only meant for a guide.
