ok, I'm kind of stuck.
I currently have three things on my list of 'things to pick up relatively soon'.
1) 135 F/2L
3) Fuji X100
Yeah, those are definitely a mish mash of stuff, I get it. My thoughts are this.
The 135 -- I've been wanting to lean more towards using primes (although I feel I work easier with zooms at the moment). I might be able to eliminate this by using it and determining that it doens't fit my style, but until I do, it's on the list.
The 7D -- I want a backup body, and I dont mind upgrading my main body and making my 60D a backup. I can't put the thing down when I'm in Best Buy.
The Fuji X100 -- I've been considering getting a high quality P&S to keep with me, and I like the Finepix for a number of reasons.. the reviews and research I've done seem to indicate it will be a great P&S that I will be able to use for a while, but I find it hard to put $1200+ into a P&S.
What would YOU do?
135L: Rent first before buying. Try it out for a weekend and see how you like shooting with it.
7D: I must ask; why do you need a backup body? Truth be told the only reason I can think of for backup bodies are if you're a professional (if your main body messes up, you won't lose business as you get it fixed). Not to mention both bodies use the same sensor (it isn't a case of one body for FF, one body for APS-C), so yeaup.
x100: You should PM michintom. He's experience with the x100 and DSLR. I know he went back to a DSLR a while ago, so it might be worth it to ask about his opinion of the x100 and how it handles.
