I couldn't afford all my nice gear if I was a Pro Photographer. That's been a large part of my decision process.

I've also been considering a 7D funny thing is a 7D seems to outpace a 1D Mark III in almost every respect but is less to buy even buying brand new 7D vs used 1D Mark III
Any thoughts on that frink?
Sorry, I've got nothing against Canon, but I shoot Nikon/Leica so I have no idea about those camera's at all. In general, sensor tech has advanced so much over the last 5 years it's hard to justify the old bodies. Everyone I know who has a 7D loves it.
