My gear is much cheaper than yours and I've shot in SF downpour before. And I don't mean light sprinkling; I mean raining bucketloads of water. 50D and my old EF 28mm f/1.8 handled it without any issues. My current 50D and Sigma 30mm still are able to do it just fine.

So in short, you're fine

the t2i and the 7d are completely two different animals....build, ergonomics and VF is where the 7d shines....

Yeah, if I were gonna skimp on the backup, I'd just get another 60D from CLP for like $650. I feel like a 7D is worth it at the moment, though I might wait until they announce something new and see if any prices start dropping.

I'm not saying the 7D is better than the T2i; I'm just saying if MB finds himself in a situation where the 7D's extra features are unneeded, it's an option to consider

Welp, nevermind then.

And good luck on that. Canon is always a bit private when it comes to their new offerings. I have no idea why, but they just are

You know I appreciate and value your feedback R3 -- it makes alot of fiscal sense, so if I were hard up for a budget backup it would make complete sense.

One question remains (kinda intermixed) -- are there any non ~$2000 lenses that have decent hyperfocal ranges at f8 (as marked on the range finder)?

Haha, no offense taken at all. "Welp" is just one of those quirky words I have when typing online.

And no clue on the lens, sorry! Venturing a guess here: Perhaps the 70-200 f/2.8? I know it gets a fair amount of use with regards to wildlife, but again just a guess.

E-410 actually doesn't have IS. It's the tradeoff for it being so small.

Does Pentax have any weather sealed cameras?

Usually the hyperfocal range finder is only on primes.. take a look at the 50 f/1.2L's rangefinder vs the 50 f/1.4 You'll see the 50 f/1.4 has a 22, whereas the 1.2 has 8, 11 and 16. Notice as you stop the lens down, the range gets wider -- this makes sense because you're stopping down the aperture. Zooms (even constant minimum aperture ones) wont have this simply because the DOF changes at different focal lengths (as I understand it).

The Zeiss 50 f/1.4 seems to have a better defined hyperfocal range but I'd prefer a non-MF lens..

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
2) 7D
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?
What about a 5D classic instead? If you're shooting events and not sports so much, it would save you a bundle. Or go for broke and get a 5DII. FF really makes primes even better. 5D/5DII +135L is something that has to be experience to be believed.

And if I had $1200 to spend on a P&S like the x100, I'd rather get a decent EVIL camera (like a NEX-5) instead with a pancake prime.
