There are so many people getting caught up in the (borrowing a phrase from Bryan) Digital Camera Arms Race, that it's getting ridiculous. Now don't take that the wrong way. I'm all for the advancement of digital camera technology. But some people are frothing to ditch last years 6.3 MP dSLR for the newest 8 MP dSLR .. Sure, it's a few MP higher .. and sure, it may shoot at a faster frame rate, but at the end of the day, it's all about the image.<br><br>I contend it's not about upgrading your Digital SLR, it's about buying and using the right glass. Upgrading the body and staying with the cheapest lenses is like a high-performance automobile with discount tires.<br><br>I'm having the time of my life, really .. shooting film with OUTSTANDING Takumar lenses .. Shooting Digital with the Canon. Now it's time to get good glass for the DReb.<br><br>****************<br>

Since I don't work for Life magazine or the White House photographer's office, I've been using the same 2.1 megapixel Canon camera for 3 years:<br><br><img src=http://www.canon.cz/produkty/digital/powershotA20/front.gif><br><br>Makes great pictures for the web, 4 X 6's, 5 X 7's and even 8 X 10's!<br><br>

Don't underestimate the importance of a high frame rate/buffer when it comes to any action photography. If you don't get the picture you want in the first place what's the point of having nice glass? <br>No doubt people take the MP race way too seriously, I'm still happy with my 2.7mp DSLR! <br><br>
Good glass is fine...but you still have to know your equipment. I agree, MP is overrated unless you are doing it professionally.<br><br>Good glass is also $$$. Pick me up some while you are out. Just this one, ok? <br><br>
Unless they're professionals, I agree completely. I know a few people around who bought a dSLR just to say they have one. They don't have a clue how to use it beyond the automatic mode and their pictures look the same as if they came from the cheapest of Point and Shoot cameras.<br><br>Now if they're pros, having faster frame rates can be a big deal when shooting action shots. The MP is kind of meaningless though.<br><br><br>
