    still want to know:tongue: i think i've worked out that i'm a prime girl, am thinking of going for a wider angle lens next. looking at a sigma 30mm- really good write ups. A good zoom would be advantageous on safari! canon does a nice selection of 70-200s- i have the 70-200 f4 L which is very good quality for the price - took me a while to get the shots i wanted but i'm learning- it's not the lens it's me.

    The 7D has got some cracking reviews, still waiting for some sample shots from Keith!

    It's wonderful when you get to the stage where you appreciate primes

    a good zoom would be great for safari, I wouldnt get one without Image stabilisation though so my choice of the really good lenses would be
    70-200f4 IS (since the 2.8 is a bit expensive)
    or possibly even better for safari 100-400IS

    The 7D is the best APS-C camera that Canon do, it's streets ahead of the 40d/50d etc. I still prefer my 5dMKII because I prefer full frame really but I accept that it's because I'm weird the 7d would be ideal for most non-weirdos

    i think i read somewhere that they're bringing out a new 70/200 2.8IS so maybe worth looking out for deals. I wish I'd got the IS but it was double the price.

    they have indeed brought out a new 70-200 2.8IS And in most places it's listed at about 2800!!!!! now, the 70-200 2.8IS is my most favourite lens on any camera system, ever. Did I say, ever. Ever ever but even I can't bring myself to pay 2800 for a new one when the old one is utterly brilliant.

    Sadly not too many deals on the old one either because as I say, it's so darn good that they can sell them all without discounting anyway
