Mine was a fortunate shot of the deer leaping - though I have plenty of blurred birds - and even more cars in the archives!

Hope no one minds - took this one this afternoon and preferred it, so I've changed my entry. More than happy to change back.

Fine by me Mark. An oldie from me - and quite a shock it was to discover that it has been more than 10 years since I bought my last DSLR - but they are so expensive now I suspect it will have to see me out.

Not really what I was after. But late Sunday evening  was putting up a wardrobe (hate DIY type jobs) and I remembered that I didn't have a photo. Thought about an archive but the managed to get this.

My latest is just over a year old - I seem to get a new one about every 5 or 6 years. But the way the prices are going up and less feature improvements, I'm not sure when I'll get another one.  I don't feel mirrorless is an improvement at the moment anyway. I just wish they would add animal eye detection to my Mk3. Its on the latest mirrorless which came out at a similar time.

I think you're right Mark, I haven't really put the effort in to finding the money for a new one as the improvements seem too incremental and small to justify the outlay. I have bought a new bridge camera and a new compact in that time, so could have bought a DSLR instead. But to be honest I use the Panasonic bridge almost all of the time now - versatility is worth more to me than absolute performance.

We are lucky in our little camera club (https://www.eymetphotoclub.fr)  to have a member who was a photo journalist for various Paris nationals. He always maintains that capturing the moment is more important that it being technically correct (well, he would, wouldn't he?) - the trouble is he seems to do both, every single time!

For me its the classic case of want vs need.

I don't necessarily need a new DSLR but I want one. And as has been mentioned, they ain't cheap. I would love some new lenses, but don't need them so putting off. For now at least.
May the Force be with you.

The AF on my 1D Mk3 was not the best - better than previous DSLR's but would miss occasionally. The Mk4 was better but not perfect so missed that one and went for the 1Dx - and the AF was/is excellent - missed the 1DxMk2 - and bought the Mk3 after trying it (big mistake!) and found the AF off the scale. The only thing that I would like it to have would be general eye detection - it works with people exceptionally well using live view and head detection very very well with the normal viewfinder - so ideal for motorsports (Apparently - I've not been able to test it!) but works with portraits - but that isn't hard anyway.

As for lenses - I probably have enough - though with a limitless budget I would like a 600mm f4 and 200-400mm f4 - but those two alone are well over £20k. Nearly £25k - I just got depressed and looked  :uglystupid2:
