Rehaan.
Since you are in US why dont you check out EOS 10D or 1D? Well, that depends a lot on what you're doing in terms of photography.
I'm planning to buy a 10D later this year.
You're right. I'm heavily into camera but more than that I'm into creating image.
My current camera set up: EOS1V body, 70-200 2.8, 50mm 1.4, 100mm 2.8 macro, 20mm 2.8 wide. All of them are USM.
Cheers.

Hey Rudra, (we are killing the topic of this thread )

EOS10D and 1D are wayyyyy out of my budget!
(My dads couzin picked up an old canon digi-slr EOS1 ? or something for ONLY 500AUS$ !!!! (from a photographer friend)..lucky guy!
A nice choice of lenses you have there.....i wish there was a cheaper digi which could handle standard 35mm lenses as opposed to an expensive digislr.
We should really start a camera thread @TBHP

Just love that torquey CRDi engine. The engine alone makes the Accent, Its got a 0 - 100 timing of 13 seconds odd!!! Thats quicker than the Lancer. Its almost like an automatic in the city, hardly have to shift gears...This is one accent I would love to drive on an everyday basis.

artofzen, duuuude! Did I hear that right!! You have a 15" rear wheel with a street tyre matched with an 18" motocross tyre on the front! Scare's me just thinking about it! Must handle like an Amby with a flat tyre! In a flood!

Well, i hope after some time at T-BHP, you will understand the significance of proper handling as well as just making your car/bike just look good!

Welcome to the most educated Indian Automotive forum...in India!

Now that would really be the bottom edge of handling eh?
