    Anyone looking to buy a Canon T1i with the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens? I have that along with a Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom Lens and Canon PIXMA 9000 Mark II Printer.

    All are brand new, never opened.

    Back in the day with 35mm, I think the market was much more competitive. I shot with an Olympus OM-2 for the longest time... so you could make more of an argument for the Olympuses, the Pentax, the Minoltas, etc....

    However, since the transition into the digital age, I believe that Canon and Nikon have emerged as a leaders. Call it better advertisement, or call it what you want, the fact remains that they are the leaders of the digital imaging industry.
    Leaders?

    In sales? Sure. Lens selection? Sure.

    Saying that they are overall leaders in (general) digital technology is a stretch.

    I started snapping and walking closer and closer and then got about 4 ft from him.

    I'm thinking of getting a tripod. Any suggestions on one that is compatible with the Canon 1d Mark iii (heavy).

    OK after reading a bunch of reviews I went for the Manfrotto tripod and since I have a $50 off coupon I went with the Manfrotto head for it. All the reviews are very positive and also say it's nice and tall for us tall boys.

    Amazon.com: Manfrotto 055CXPRO3 Carbon Fiber 3 Section Tripod with Q90 Column and Magnesium Castings (Black): Camera…

    Amazon.com: Manfrotto 322RC2 Joystick Head Short: Camera & Photo

    Can't wait to have a decent tripod.

    I would be interested in how that head works out for you. I could use to update mine, never liked it much. Too difficult to use and make adjustments.

    It looks like you got yourself a nice setup there.

    I've got that very head for my tripod. You'll LOVE it. Holds VERY steady and has adjustable tension as well. It handles the D3+ the 400mm f/2.8, no sweat.

    The only thing I'd suggest is that you may want to pick up an extra baseplate or two so you can have one on each body and your 70-200 f/2.8's mount.
    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.
