Long time visitor of this site too, and thought I should actually join and participate in the great community going on here. I'm from Melbourne, and work in advertising. Currently I only do photography as a hobby and I'm still using a couple film SLR's (all early Minolta's and mostly Minolta and Sigma glass). I'm just waiting for the 5D Mk iii (like everyone else here it seems :p haha!) so that I can enter the digital realm, and enhance my skills in photography (film is just too expensive to get a lot of solid practise, although I cherish the discipline of shooting film). I studied film for two years, and my heart lies in photography whether it be still or motion, which is why I think the next iteration of the 5D will be the perfect camera for me. That being said, I've never owned a Canon camera before, so I'm not partial to any brand, however it seems Canon are onto a winning formula with the 5D
So nice to meet you all I guess!
Bring on the next generation of cameras
I should also add, I have been toying with the idea of getting a 550D due to their stupidly low price to get into digital early, and to keep as a crop body once I do get the 5D, but we'll see what happens in the next month
