Thanks Paul. Any idea about when ?

with your quality of imagery Koen buy a real DLSR , you know you want one

Great, invasion of the Pauls ;o)

would buy the 5D, with good lenses Paul, even though it doesn't have a swivelscreen lol, but it's a lot of money, and I really don't think I'm good enough (either as a photographer, or as a salesman of my photos) to justify the expense. I really like the Sony R1, a compact with a dslr sensor, and (aparently) with a lens superior to most dslr kit lenses, but the idiots put a swivelscreen on it that only swivels a bit and only gives me half of the angles I want. The Olympus Paul suggested looks interesting though (it's a dslr). But I'm not sure I can wait lol.

come on Koen its time you spent some money on a DLSR you should be able to get one a t a good price being in the Far East

nah... I hardly understand anything about the technical aspects of it all. Still haven't figured out how that +/- exposure button works - not kidding here. I see dots and numbers, but people keep speaking about "stops". Is underexpose + or - ?
Afraid of what will happen if I have a dslr and I have to figure out how to manage the DOF. And the list goes on and on. And I think that if you buy an expensive camera like the 5D, you should know about these things to use the camera to the best of its abilities. That's why the R1 looked so interesting to me. It should give me better pictures than now - having a CMOS sensor, raw, lots of pixels and a very good lens, and it gives me the chance to start learning - at my incredible snail pace - a bit more about things my A95 just can't cover. And even if I fail at the latter, I'll still end up with better pictures than now, and don't have to worry/feel guilty too much about the expenses I did. With the 5D on the other hand... that's one year of education for my little girl :o(

Yeah, the more I think about the price of the 5D, the more I think about staying with film for as long as possible...

I would like a 5D if I could afford it. Film is OK but it is easier to catalogue and keep thousands of photographs if digital is used.
