BGD600, I have given up on local stores, at least for bodies and lenses
I really want to promote and have access to the depth of knowledge and experience found in places such as camera stores, but the extra cost is significant.
The 70-200 lens would have cost me minimum $500 more from a store
Most bodies are around 6 or 7 hundred dollars more in a store here than buying online
So online it is, which means I won't be trying them before hand
But I trust my judgement, and the info here
There are other (pro) photographers in the family (Canon! grrr) so we get to chat about things a lot, and gives me some idea what to do

Sirraj, high iso is a factor I'm taking into consideration

Stan, thank you, you make perfect sense. I do enjoy reading your posts, and I learn a lot from you.
I will also print up your list of recommendations and pin them on a wall somewhere (twice!)
Lighting, I am facinated with lights (lighting) and am sure it's a direction I will explore more, later. I have a couple of SB 700's but haven't had the time to learn and experiment with them much so far. I got them so they're there when the time hits me
Lenses, I like good glass, and am just starting to appreciate how much better they are. It's an area I will gradually improve in
Training, I am a diy sort of bloke, so most of my ability to date is self taught (mostly learning from others though). When I feel comfortable in a formal class I'll be there. I'm sure I'll find a whole new world opens up, hopefully!!
Tripod, I currently have a Velbon Ultra Rexi L with a Markins Q10
I know some don't rate the Velbon too highly, but it suits my purposes very well at the moment, and locked down with a bag hanging off it (fitted my own hook) I find it very stable
Body, guess I'm getting my list upside down to yours

David, good info, and good to hear it's working for you

POC, 'Do something new and different and have fun. Forget logic'
That just makes so much sense. Haven't heard my lovely wife say that, but it's how she lives. I had a chuckle over your post too, thank you.
