Joris Van den Berghe : sports,animals,photo journalism,even street (it helps to have a fast & accurate AF system,my D80 sometimes is not as fast as I would need)

I see :). For low-light/street photography you need a decent AF-system indeed. Don't know if you consider airshow and aviation photography in general as 'sports', (some people do) but do that with my little A350 :). An even faster AF-system would help indeed, but I hold my own.

I'm a bit like Citrus: big and heavy when necessary, but I would also like something light like a NEX :)...still wonder if there will ever be video control on a NEX.

To elaborate on how you CAN take better images with a D3s than a rebel:

"Oh, look at that, I need to change my ISO to get a sharp shot though. *dives into menu*

....

ISO adjusted, moment passed.


Just an example.

The Rebel does feature an ISO-button, there's no need to get into the menu actually :). It does not have something like the A700's quick navi though, where you can see a lot of settings at the back LCD and change them through the Fn button and the joystick.

Yes, on my 500d, MOST of the settings can be altered in a matter of 2 to 3 secs. But ofcourse if the subject moment has passed that quick theres nothing we can do. I dont think even the big cameras let you do it under a sec.

It all boils down to practice too. A new user who looks at the menu and wonders where the ISO setting is obviously going to take some time getting it. I know, because i used to :wink:. But when your really used to the menu. Its almost a subliminal action. After all holding a button and turning a wheel isnt all that tough.

Yes maybe on the more pro models you might do it in 2 secs as opposed to 3 secs. But whether that validates the 4x cost is a matter to consider.
