Hi, Unfortunately, one can only post in one forum, but I also wish some people in the digital video could read this post. Anyway, .... Canon came out recently with the Canon 60D, (perhaps is not to be seen yet in some shops). I was told it lies between the 550D (or Rebel 2Ti), and the EOS 7D. Looking at the EOS 5D Mark II, I wonder how long will it take for Canon or Nikon to bring out a full format out to the market for a bit more or a bit less than a 1,000 *units* ?? I have no rush, but I would like to plan a bit (ahead of time??). Currently, I own a Nikon D50 with an 18-55 zoom lens. I dream of buying two lenses that would do good for the things I am interested to photograph: A 16-85mm zoom lens. Canon makes that too (but 15-85mm) A 11-16mm zoom lens from Tokina. Each of these lenses costs about 600 *units*, and both of them are meant to be used only with cameras with a crop factor, not with full format cameras. I am not a working pro. My gear has to last. Or at least I can only think of changing it after four to five years. I don't abuse it, and I don't use it everyday. My thought was to buy one, or the two lenses before the end of the year. A new camera next year. I am happy with the D50 I have now. Unfortunately they don't make them anymore, and I am also interested in using the video features of the newer dSLRS. So what to do?? In two or three years to throw away the lenses because the new full format cameras will displace the cameras with a crop factor ?? It would be interesting for me to hear your thoughts and comments. Very kind regards, igmolinav. *units* - Depending on your market, a unit is in $,, or pounds.
