A guy the next block over is using a Canon Digital Rebel, but is looking to upgrade to a 20D soon, since he wants to start selling his photos.
And, of course, N has only good things to say about her 20D.
My pal up at the end of the driveway just bought a Canon GL2 Digital Video Camcorder, and is putting it to good use shooting a short industrial documentary for a cosmetics display that's going in down town. Again, a paid job. He wants me to help him with the editing. The image quality on the 3-chip DV camcorder is superb. Very clean.
I'm surrounded by people with cool photographic gear, who are all putting it to good use, and even turning over a little bit of cash with it. And, for some reason, it all seems to be Canon equipment.
