Bo i really think that the 828 is going to be an awesome camera,
Hey Rez, I would like to say i am friends with Andy (Dripstick), another D30 user, I am sure his lenses are the difference, as any D30 user. I will say it time and time again, its the indian, not the arrow....or its the photog not the camera. Dripper is a fantastic photographer, I don't think it matters what camera is in his hands....as long as its decent! I am wondering what the diffences the D30 would have over a 10D? I personally think that if this is a first time user, nothing could be simpler than a Sony or Olympus. I think i will get into the DSLR when I have time to take a course on photography!!
Drive it like you stole it!
