Well, there's at least two of us now.

Long time stalker, first time poster.

Since finding this site, most days I find myself checking several times a day, either at work or on the mobile phone at southern cross station.

Make that 3 of us....I have been monitoring the site for ages, with the faint hope that I will see a post about the release of a new 24-70 L IS 2.8.
<sigh>

I have a look most days. I'm a very happy 40D owner who takes mainly nature photos with a mix of CanonL and SigmaEX lenses. At the moment I see little or no reason to upgrade my camera body. I might if Canon could produce something with high ISO performance approaching Nikons best, I dont necessarily want massive megapixels

Aussie! Aussie! Aussie!

Hi, I'm from Brisbane.

First time poster, but I love this site and check it out most days. I'm still stuck in film land - mostly medium format with an RB67, but I've also got a few canon film bodies (favourite being an elan 7e / AKA eos 30) with some very nice lenses - and this site stops me blowing a lot of cash on a new dslr.

For a while I was thinking of buying a 50d, but then the rumours of a 60D appeared, so I thought I'd wait. Then the 7D came out and I thought that'd be the camera for me. But the 60D rumours continued, so I thought I'd wait. Now the 60D is out people seem a bit underwhelmed. And I've noticed that the rumours of the 5D Mkiii are starting to come in. So maybe I'll wait for the new 5D. Maybe I'll wait for a 70D. Anyway, I'm happy with what I'm using.

That being said, I'd love to see rumours of a new 400mm f5.6 L with IS come out, now that our dollar has come back up again.

Playing the waiting game is an awfully good way to convince yourself to not buy anything (and thus save money, perhaps unnecessarily-spent money). On the other hand... not such a great idea if you want to get anywhere/start taking photos. :)

Thanks, L. In theory, you're right. I spend a small fortune on film, developer, paper etc each year. It all adds up. I'd save quite a bit of money (and time) by going digital. Deep down, I think my real reason for not picking up a DSLR is that I spend all day in front of a computer at work (In fact, that's where I am now). The last thing I want to do is be in front of a computer at home. Besides, my wife's happy with my photos - I'm happy getting that far!

Don't you spend enough time in the darkroom, too? ;)

One of the few things I really love about using Lightroom is the ability to save and apply presets in batches. I go through each and tweak, as I have to in order to make sure they're perfect for selling, but they are still excellent without. Or more to the point, you can just shoot in general with JPEG. :)

Hey dudes, can't remember why I didn't post here ages ago, but I didn't.

My name's Josh and I'm from the Blue Mountains, NSW. I'm pretty active on a few photography forums so chances are you've run into me before.

Always keen to meet up with decent blokes for shoots too.

Long time stalker... strange that this topic motivated me to finally make an account and post. Just like spanky (and a ton more of us) I check the RSS several times a day for that elusive 24-70 IS. Forum looks cool though!

Following up from one of my earlier posts, thought you guys might be interested to hear that I've joined the 21st century and picked up a second hand 30D on the weekend. Was considering buying something new, but I've been noticing a decline in film camera prices in the last couple of months and with the fall in the US dollar, ended up buying another medium format camera - a mamiya 6 - last week as well. I've been interested in one of these for years and unfortunately, my camera budget only stretches so far. But two new cameras to play with over summer and I'm excited about that!

Very happy with my 7D here (Canon 10-22mm, 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II, 50mm f/1.4, Sigma 17-55mm f/2.8)
Hanging out for a 5D Mk III with Dual Digic V Processors and a 24-70mm f/2.8L IS lens.... Well I can dream...
