I think it's interesting how bodies lose their value so quickly, yet the cost of the same old lenses just keeps going up. It's very frustrating actually. This is why I plan to put my $$ into lenses even before buying a body. The body will always be replaceable. I'm still wondering if the 50D was all that much better than my 30D and if I'd even spend the extra money for it. I, too, am awaiting the release of a 60D in hopes that the prices of the other bodies will decrease and I can stay with the hobby. Otherwise, the money stays in the bank and Canon can will have to await my business. Times aren't just tough for them!
