I will wait and see what Canon announce camera wise in the new year, if in deed they do announce / release an upgraded model or either the 7D or 5D series. I like the idea of full frame, but 3.9fps over 8 fps could be a factor to take in to account.
Oh, yes, that was my mistake regarding the lens, it is a 18 - 55 mm, which now puts me on the idea of getting that for gigs, I think it would be idea.
I agree, I will hold tough until new releases and wait and see. Still, it is fun getting back in to photography, may never work on a Horseman again, and do miss the darkroom, but thats progress.
Thanks everyone for the advice.
