I just posted a complete Canon 5D Mark II camera system (L glass, flash and much more) in the classified section. No more lugging around big cameras. It's priced to sell quickly. I am going to get a small, high quality camera that meets most of my needs and is easy to pack. I'm at the front end of the research right now for such a camera. Suggestions would be appreciated. The researching prior to purchase is half the fun. I'm looking forward to it. My needs in a smaller camera? Good image quality, fast lens, good low light capability, good focusing system, zoom lens. Don't need video or flash so neither is a must have. Wish I could keep the gear I'm selling AND purchase a new camera but finances won't allow it...assuming I want to remain married.
