Unless of course, someone can get me a good deal on a Canon EOS 1D.

Good! That means I'll have a larger slice of the digital imaging pie. By the way...let me know if you find a good deal on the 1D, I'd like to have one too.

For me, it's until either:<BR>
1. I can afford a full-frame D-SLR (like the proposed Contax N1, or Pentax MZ-D), or<BR>
2. A whole new, high-quality lens system (comparable, to, say, Nikon, Canon, Minolta, etc.) is built so that all focal ranges (wideangles too) are covered for cameras with smaller digital chips.<BR>
And of course even a D-SLR of any kind in my price range is out of reach.<BR>

The Olympus E-10/E-20 cameras are probably perfect for what you need. Oly makes good glass, there's a close-up attachment, and it's an SLR so what you see is what you get.<BR>
If you want a serious digital SLR with interchangable lenses, wait a couple of years for the Foveon (sp?) chip to improve and find its way into a 35mm or medium format body. Right now there's a 14 megapixel back for some 6x4.5 cameras that may do but there is the irritating focal length multiplier situation.<BR>
Get something that'll do the job and then wait for the technology to catch up.

If you knew the price Kodak used to charge for a Canon mount DSLR you would consider an EOS 1D to be a bargain at the present price point.<BR>
question circa 1998: Canon mounting Kodak, or Chevy Suburban? /ibb/skins/default/emoticons/eek.gif
