Photo: Digital Camera Review
I don't want to spend $1000 on a more entry level model only to end up wanting to upgrade the next year. I'll probably end up with something in the mid-range of professional DSLR's, but she's a beaut above, isn't she?
When I have a new hobby, I tend to obsessively immerse myself in the subject until I'm satisfied. (Right now it's blogging, before this it was ancestry, before that it was running, etc, etc.) Meaning it's only a matter of time before I will end up in photography classes and sorting through thousands of wildlife photos on my computer trying to master those perfect shots. Until then, I will just continue to stalk pro birding photographers on Flickr.

Ya, I definitely have a thing for hummingbirds. But right now, I definitely don't have a thing for photographing them well.
I feel ashamed for not being able to capture these little gems in a more accurate light! Yup, definitely time for a camera upgrade.
