    Can't argue with that much. As it happens, I own No 6 in that list - amusingly, I won it from WDC's sister mag Amateur Photographer as a competition prize. ;)

    Interesting that it says "one of the best CSCs on the market" rather than "one of the best cameras on the market".

    Get yourself to a camera shop, and see how they feel. Try a Canon 70D (and possibly 60D) as well. The spec and performance differences will probably be smaller than the handing differences - how it...

    For sport and possibly wildlife, perhaps; for most subjects, the 70D makes a more compelling case, unsurprisingly given the relative ages of the cameras.

    With all due respect, when told that it's something that will be looked at "at the start of the year", it's hardly sensible to ask for an update on the second of January.:rolleyes: In fact I think...

    Same as at AP - I think a new body would be a lot more use than a lens, given the age and limited high ISO capabilities of the D40X.

    Given that there are G5 bodies going for less than that on Ebay, absolutely not, no.

    The S630 was launched 7 years ago - http://www.dpreview.com/news/2007/01/07/samsungs630s730, so if you've only had yours 2 or 3 years, it must've been sitting around somewhere for a very long time...

    I've never heard of a "Made in China" model having a trigger voltage over 10V, although I can't be absolutely categoric. There's a table of trigger voltages here:...

    Depends on how old the Vivitar is. I use a fairly recent one more than happily, but the first ones can have trigger voltages way in excess of the maximum 250V. If it's made in China, it should be OK,...

    The AF and frame rate of the 7D are far superior to the 550D, so if you feel that's where your problems lie, upgrade the camera. You won't get any improvement in actual image quality, and focus speed...

    The 18-135 is actually a fairly decent lens - certainly a lot better than the 18-200, which really isn't that marvellous. If you want an additional lens with more reach, the 55-250 is an excellent...

    I couldn't agree more - I would add "sad and pathetic", TBH, but I don't see that it hurts anyone apart from those actually doing it. ;)

    Don't think the ratings really do anything, so not sure it matters. They're there to help the photographer - it hardly does that if people rate their own!
