Nothing, mechanically. Its just I want to have more choice for future upgrades . Comparing the A230, and the 20D's, specs, the Canon does seem to be a better camera, so I figure why not. As well as that, I dont find my A230 comfortable to hold compared to the Canon's and Nikons I've tired, but thats a personal thing.

And to confuse people even more, LR has decided to change my settings again, after I plugged in the HD Hero. This needs investigating

Not wide enough and now long enough. if I want to be restricted, might as well not zoom (and I only use my zooms at the extremes so PRIMEES EVERYWHERE!). Oh I don't care about sharpness. Just have it not stupid soft (like my out of calibrating 35L) and I am fine.

Well, today marks the first time in a long while that a security guard (outside a petroleum plant) tried to rough me up for trying to take photos of the sunset behind a bunch of vapor stacks. Real great time.

All €500) but I dont know if its worth jumping, like I'd probably only be able to afford one lens for any of the above cameras and i'd also lose my flashgun (that being said used Flash guns for Canon/Nikon are easy for me to get, and cheap too)

So whats everyones opinions on the situation ? Advice ?

Edit : Should have mentioned, both Canon bodies are used, the Nikon would be new
Jumping to Canikon is fine, but one good thing about Sony are the large amount of old Minolta glass and AF Zeiss lenses. But I see what you're saying nevertheless.

Big difference in the Canon 1D series and xxD. The 1D's are large with an integrated grip and very heavy. However, the build quality is superb, with heavy duty sealing. The xxD's are a step down, but still have excellent build quality.

Odd, but I think I follow you. I'd love an all prime setup too (who wouldn't), but having only one body and doing the kind of photography I do make it cumbersome. If I'm several miles into a trail, having two bodies and several primes would be a PITA.

I've had some run-ins myself when shooting abandoned sites. Unfailing politeness and feigned naivete will get you out of a lot of pickles.

Oh that applies to so many things in life... Got me out of speeding tickets successfully so far

Sadly, I pretty much had to leave before my anxiety got the best of me and I swung back. I managed one so-so shot before I turned away.

Primes everywhere except for wide zooms (14-24,16-35,17-35) and the 70-200s. Reaaaaal nice.

@GoneTomorrow : (sorry for not quoting, but my phone makes it a pain). Well, in an idea l world, I'd love the 1D, but I don't think I'll have the money for it, which is why I've been really looking at the 20D. It all depends on how much I get for my Sony gear really. Still, I wouldn't be surprised if I end up posting here on Monday as a 1D owner

Thanks for your help too !

ergonomically speaking the a230 is a pretty horrible camera. since you dont have many lenses its a good time to switch to canikon if you dont like the sony position. but i wouldnt recommend going with a 1Dii or a 20d. the 20d is such a old body that its not really worth switching for and as for the 1dii, it is a very very heavy body and you wont see the IQ difference if you dont have a nice L or even a higher end glass. save up a bit more money and pick up a 50d or 7d.

the nikon d90 or d7000 are also very very good cameras, and ergonomically speaking the nikon is more similar to sony.
