My camera is a Canon EOS 1D which was the best of the best when I bought it back in 2002. It still works great but it doesn't have the resolution, dynamic range or high iso performance of the new models. I would love to replace it with a 5D Mark III but don't really have the $$$. Sometimes I wonder if I could be happy with an entry level Rebel. My brother forgot his Rebel at my Mom's house and won't be back until Easter so I "borrowed" it. I know I could live with this camera for portraits but the jury is still out on action and wildlife.
