one thing i donÂ´t understand is people who always think about switching to a different brand when a new camera comes out.
i mean... you donÂ´t have much from the canon system (bodys, lenses)?
no, I don't: I purposedly try to be as vendor-agnostic as I can
for example, this is my lens set: 18-55 kit lens, 35mm, 50mm, 90mm, 135mm, 180mm, 300mm
all those primes are leitz vintage lenses for the leica-R mount, and they will work on canon, nikon, sony alpha, sony nex, m43, you name it (except the 50mm which is M42 and doesn't work on nikon, and maybe sony alpha)
so I just have to sell a body with kit lens, battery grip, and two extra batteries, and burn $150 on a new set of lens mount adaptors
(you'll notice I'm lacking on the wide end of things; that's precisely because I didn't want to buy the tokina 11-16 and be stuck with a specific lens mount, so I'm delaying that purchase as much as I can, and it's looking like that strategy will pay off)
next: Nikon and Canon, bring out your best shots or be damned!!
edit: oh, and now that I'm at it...
thereâ€™s a bunch of very detailed previews at dpreview:
* the PAL versions donâ€™t have 60p, 30p or 24p, just 50p and 25p
* the NTSC versions donâ€™t have 25p or 30p, but 24p at 24 Mbps should look great
* the tilt screen seems more limited than the one in the canons (doesn't seem like it can be located on the left side of the camera?)
and also, this is a great EOSHD post on which lenses can work on an alpha mount; very useful:
