From the East Midlands.   As with others have developed an unhealthy obsession with Canon product roadmaps!

I feel strongly that for many people and most purposes something like 18MP is totally adequate, and so I would like to see a FF camera at around this sort of resolution going all out for the best possible image quality.

Sadly I feel Canon don't agree, but I keep looking here just in case the fabled 3D ever materialises to fill this gap.

Originally from Kent, live in Germany.

Have an EOS 350D, hoping to get a 600D or 60D this year if finances permit.

currently living in Brum though originally from the Philippines by way of USA.  had a 550D which I have just sold in eBay in order to buy 60D.  holding off though in hope of some rebates :)

Gadgets,

You have my respect. I've got much less will power and have just pressed the "go" button on the new EF70-200L IS mk2 and part exchanging my "mark 1" f/2.8L (non IS) as part of the deal. I am having to stump up £1230, £1780 which was the best legitimate price I could find on the internet, less £550 for my 6 year old mint condition lens. My local photoshop volunteered to match the web prices which I very much appreciate.

If the 1Ds mk4 appears this year as some suggest, then 2011 will be VERY expensive!

Greetings from Hackney, London. 40D owner looking to upgrade to 5D MK3 this year and some decent L glass if I'm lucky. Still undecided between the 70-300L or (70-200L II + 1.4 extender), but if the MK3 comes with a new 24-70 kit lens this may be a better option for me.

I spend waaay too much time on Canon Rumors and many other sites, but I do enjoy it. As a side effect, time seems to slow down while waiting for updates...  :)

Greetings from sunny Plymouth (CR0). 

I've decided to stop buying photography equipment for a while, to prove to myself that I'm not addicted.  Apart from a new set of filters and a new printer, but they don't count!

Well, isn't this a jolly get together, maybe we should all meet up for a nice cup of tea sometime? (Hey, can't spoil all of the stereotypes, it's what keeps our tourism industry going, isn't it?).

Greetings from Wiltshire. I run GMCPhotographics, a wedding and portrait photographic company. Business is good and having my busiest year to date.
I've been a Canon man since my father bought me my first SLR in my very early teens, an AV-1 with a 50mm f1.8. I've been tempted by various Nikons and Olympus cameras over the years but they all feel so alien to me when i use them. I just KNOW Canon kit so intuatively and i get such great photos from them....why change? I've never had any serious AF issues (I know some have) and their pro gear is just so solid. My 5DII's often take a light shower in the rain and today I've had no issues with them (and with my 5D's before that).
Yes new lens releases and cameras are a thrill, but the current gear is just so good and getting good pictures is so easy to do now. I'm a big fan of Canon's low light primes (24IIL/35L/50L/85IIL/135L) and they are pretty much perfect so there's not much that Canon can offer in a newer version. I think there's a little milage with the current 135L, make it weather sealed and a tad brighter (135/1.8) would keep it state of the art in that range (to match Sony)...and an IS unit would be fab too.

Kind Regards,

Gareth

Hi Motorhead - unfortunately it did not last long, I pulled the trigger when I saw the 60D with a 18 - 135 kit lens for only £857 at Amazon.  I was very glad I got it at that price as it is now over £100 more.  That pretty much broke the dam, as I have just bought a laptop and will soon be buying a Lightroom, tripod, flash and a lens (either the 85mm 1.8 or 100mm macro) :(

Yep, I'm from Somerset but currently at university in Birmingham.

I have the ollld 5D, and various prime lenses.

Very much waiting on the 5d MkIII.
Depending on what it offers, I'll likely still get the mk II being a poor student and all.
Gotta love a bargain!

Guess I am up here representing Scotland!

Currently have a 500d, but waiting patiently for Jessops to get a 7d back in stock.

Look forward to getting a long lens in the summer, sigma's 70-200's look nice, or a 2nd hand canon 70-200 f4. Their f2.8 is just a little to expensive just now.

I check this place out way to much, but the forum is always a nice place to come and read

I own the sigma 70-200mm f/2.8. It is a great lens and will suit me fine until I can afford the canon 70-200 IS f/2.8 as it is ridiculously sharp for a zoom lens.
You will be disappointed by the bokeh on an f/4 70-200. The f/2.8 makes it all worth it and really makes the subjects stand out.
Check out one of my recent shots with the sigma 70-200mm f/2.8.

You can't get that with an f/4 lens!

Hi,  I am also from the UK, from the Leicester area though originally from Bolton.  It is slightly warmer "down" in Leicester!!!

Like most of the responders, I find myself pouring over this website too frequently.  My dream is a 7D Mk2 with extended dynamic range.  Currently using a 40D.

Yup from Uk also, Hampshire.
Have a canon 450d, waiting (and saving) for the 5dMk3.
have the kit (aweful) lens + a canon 70 300 non L lens, a tokina wide angle lens, and a canon 60mm Macro EF-S which i use mostly.

Everyday i have to tell myself not to get the 5Dmk2 and wait for the mk3. Fortunately theres little stock around of the Mk2 now, or what is there has gone up in price. Might have to wait till Q1 2012 i think before its available.
Will also be getting the canon 24-70L (shame no IS in that)
Tried the canon 100-400 L the other day, man that is heavy, didnt buy it though
