I love my 10-22. I used it with my Canon 350D mostly, now 60D.

Some shots (click!)

If you think about Nikon D600 you should wait for nice review first. All Nikons, except D800 has poor Auto ISO  function, which ignore current focal lenght. Nikon D600 can have good from D800 or poor as any other Nikon's.

1.  First of All I need a Hasselblad X5 (X1)  film scanner (for my Gaoersi 617 and Fuji TX-1). I shoot film, and love it. Well, at least Nikon Coolscan 8000. Canon doesn't make film scanners, and that really bad.
2. Sigma 30/1.4, Samyang 24/1.4 for my 60D I think I''ll get one of this soon.
3. Black Magic cinema camera for nature videography - Canon just can''t do it.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Upgrade from 10d to 60d or 7d

Only micro adjustments on 7D matters. I never need this function on my 60D, because I do tests when buying lens.
 Don't listen if someone tells 60D is plastic. That's rediculous! there are no plastic SLRs - they all are metal inside.
60D is the best Canon choice for video. You can use Magic Lantern on it, but not on 7D.
Your lenses are too big and heave for crop, I''d advise to go for 5Dm2. so 60D or 5Dm2 - my Imho.

Nikon 8000 is the best choice. Nikon 9000 is much faster, but is not as sharp as Nikon 8000.

You may consider Nikon as one of the Sony brands.

The only one important advantage of 7D is AF micro adjustment. But if you check lenses when buying, you may not worry. There were no such feature in the past.
I prefer Canon 60D or 5DM2., but not 7D. 7D is for sports and birds.

EOS Bodies / Re: Anyone shooting film?

My film background is Olympus, too!

I started with an OM30 when I passed my O-levels at 16; got money from family as a reward for doing well.

A couple of years ago, I got back into photography, and picked up an OM40 and some nice glass (see my sig below) on eBay.

Finally, I got an OM2-SP in beautiful condition and fully working, for £90 on eBay, last August. A bargain!

But I don't shoot it much these days because of the crippling development costs. Ouch. £15 for dev+scan (no prints) on a 24-exposure roll. (But as someone else said, I have had no hesitation dropping over £7k on digital equipment in the last 2 years. Hmmm...)
OM-Zuiko are just perfect lenses. Viewfinder are incredible! I wish modern cameras were so good.
But scanning is a problem. Nikon has stopped producing it perfect film scanners :( When I lived in Moscow, scanning film cost me about 9$ for a 36 roll. 4000dpi, Nikon 5000. It was very cheap and very good! Now I live not in Moscow and shoot much less. I had to buy a scanner!

After first time trying a film I left digital for a long. I came back for digital only for textures and for shooting video.
I shoot 120 film with panoramic 617 camera which is 160Mpx equivalent. I shoot 135 film with Canon EOS 620 And Olympus OM-10. Olympus is just perfect.
And I love film.

Software & Accessories / Re: tripod for travel photography

I have a Large Format 617 panoramic camera. F16,22,32 are a common aperture. So, I decided to buy a really good tripod for it and bought carbon fiber SLIK 814, which is really powerful. Now, after using this tripod I can tell that I was wrong. In 99% I don''t need such a steady tripod. And the most distracting thing is the construction of the locks. Most (but not all) carbon fiber tripods has turnlocks, which are absolutely inconvinient. It takes too much time to install. And harder to install in winter. Clips locks are "must have". And 3 legs sections, not four. And only ball head, not 3-way!
Well, I would tell some tripods with which I liked:

1.Extremely lightweight, but rather stable. Not for long exposures on a windy evening:
Slik 330dx (legs only), 2. Vanguard Espod Plus 233CB - I had some deal with both of them.

2. More heavy and stable:
Manffroto 190, Vanguard Alta+ 263AB 100

The last one Vanguard Alta+ 263AB 100 I love the most for my need.

Wellcome to my photosite  :)http://superka-photo.com/
