    Re: Upgrade to the 7D and sell my 50D??

    Thanks. I still have a lot to learn about equipment, and a lot of money to spend.

    Re: Upgrade to the 7D and sell my 50D??

    Cytoman, with this piece of advice in mind, what are you looking to upgrade by moving from a 50D to 7D? Is it 'body' features (e.g. 19-pt autofocus, HD video, weather sealing etc) or is it image...

    Re: Upgrade to the 7D and sell my 50D??

    Thanks for the insight. I would upgrade to the 7D for the body only. I would resell the 28-135 to help offset the total cost and to keep my savings plan up for the L 70-200mm.

    Re: Upgrade to the 7D and sell my 50D??

    Actually, I've only got one EF-S lens - the 17-55. I am still interested in the action/wildlife/bird photography. I still have plans to buy the new 70-200mm, but the 7D would set my savings plan back...

    Trip to Grand Canyon - suggestions wanted

    I'm taking the family to the Grand Canyon in a couple weeks. It looks like there are several places for some great shots. Any suggestions for those "high priority" sites? Thanks!

    Re: C&C Please: Spring Landscape

    Thanks, Erno. You are right about the wires. I was working on it but rushed so I could get several more angles and shots. I should have taken more time with this one, it was my best out of the bunch.

    Re: C&C Please: Spring Landscape

    Thanks for the comment. In my excitement of capturing the shot I didn't think much about the ground vs. sky proportion. As I look back I probably would have added more foreground to the shot. Never...
