I tend to become a little obsessed once I have a new interest or want to reconnect with an old one. Some people may think of that as somewhat "unhealthy" or of me being a "gear head" with a tendency towards GAS ("gear acquisition syndrome"). Oh well. But I'd respectfully disagree. I still do actually take pictures, ride my bicycle, play my guitars (or work at my day job...).

Wow, that is pretty much me, although my guitar gets a little more lonely that I would like it to get.  Bikes are getting a decent workout though.

I remember I was looking for information on L lens when I came across this site. It was back at the time when I took the dive and sold my old gear (40D + Sigma 18-200 f/3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM) for the 5D2 kit. Not knowing where to start my quest for the L-class glasses, I was desperately looking for some guidelines.

To my horror, I found out that this place is actually infested by L-addicts, and I quickly became one of them w/o knowing it.  :'(

Today, I find a great pleasure in inflicting the deadly disease upon new innocent victims. :P

I've known this site for maybe 1 year  ;D. Because the 5d mark III rumor, I create an ID  :P.
I own a T2i and search for fullframe camera, 5d3 should be good  8).

I believe I first discovered this site through rumors of the Rebel T2i replacement (the T3i), which was a camera I had (my first DSLR). But what made me come back again was the rumor in Feb about an EF-S 15-60mm f2.8 supposedly due this month.

When the 60D came out, I wasn't too hot on it at first, but once the price started to drop, factors compounded and in one of the FEW "impulse" decisions I've ever made on a purchase, decided to trade in the T2i for the 60D. Don't regret it one bit.

In the meantime I have collected a few lenses. Currently what keeps me visiting is the rumors of a replacement to the Canon 17-55 and 24-70- I have the Tamron 17-50VC which has served me well in the year+ that I've had it- but its few shortcomings (softness at f2.8, corners, focus) have left me wanting a little more. I keep hearing of issues with the 17-55 which keep scaring me away every time I feel attracted to it. I keep wondering whether it's worth the risk, or to wait for the replacement which, now with what's going on, may not come for another year or so...

Landed here because I was looking for info on when's the 5d3 (or a better FF) coming. This happened last September; I've been lurking around ever since, with a tab opening in CR as soon as my browser opens (coz I enjoy the place — not that I'm holding my breath for my original quest).

When I purchased my first camera 450D within 2 weeks 500D was released. I hate myself for taking the wrong decision and from then I check canon rumor before buying or selling any camera stuff. I also check Apple rumors regularly.

So to me getting as much technical background of things and making informed decisions when buying (rather expensive) items is part of the deal - and part of the fun.

hehe, i have exactly the same! that's also the reason why i came to this site. to get info about new camera's (especially the 7dmk2) to be released.

I was hoping for advance notice of rebate programs that were coming up.  I got that, but 24 hours advance notice... ehh...

Ditto. I was trying to learn about the 7D, found this forum a month or so ago, next thing you know I'm in here 8 or 10 times a day! The only "serious" camera I've ever owned is my 6 yr old Rebel XT, and, taking a proper photography course has been on my list forever.

Funny experience two days ago... a new Futureshop opened here Monday and after dodging my questions for a minute or two, the camera guy confessed that he was "new to this" - so there's me- breaking down the Canon DSLR line, features and rumours to him.  (You know you're spending too much time somewhere when...)
Don't take my advice. Don't even take my advice not to take my advice.

Ha ha ha good question. I guess as most users on here; we are all looking on what is coming out next. I think at the time, I was looking at what the new specs were coming out on the successor to the 50D which we all thought would have been the 60D but turned out to be 7D. I googled for anything I could find and found this site. I constantly had to see if anything new had come up and then the review came out for the 70-200 L 2.8 is II, which by the way is a great review.  Ever since that I’ve been reading comments multiple times a day.
