Very nice camera! Of course the average hobbyist needs this about like the average commuter needs a top fuel dragster to get to and from work...maybe thats just the poor guy in me talking though...:)

If ever I decide to take my photography to the professional level, this is what I would want.

Funny story, i bought a photography mag a while back and they had some results from a contest in the previous issue. The second place was taken with that very camera, while the first place image was shot with a Sony H9 point and shoot cam...lol...

Guess it goes to show that the most important component of a camera is the eye attached to the viewfinder.

Ha ha. Exactly... but just think about how much fun the commute to work would be!

But, as I mentioned somewhere else, if you get a high powered camera, then you don't have anything to blame your bad shots on but you. ;) So, me, I stick with some less expensive models.

It is a very nice camera, most of the time this camera is just to "show" the client that they are a pro. It usually works, too.

I have visited a forums where a true hobbyist, amateur bought this camera and that person was asking for advice from others, man those Canon pro can be vicious, harsh and rude. The totally ripped into this girl because she had the audacity to buy a pro camera and wasn't a pro.

If you can actually afford it, why not buy?

I bet you are right joe. I'd be impressed if a photog I hired showed up with a Lambroghini of cameras like that one. My sister is a professional photog in Philly and is thinking about getting one.

But, as to "pros" being snobbish jerks... well, jerks are jerks whatever pretext they use to try to act all officious. Hope that amateur gal you mentioned saw through them.
