When I first got my EOS Kiss Digital N, I used to carry it around everywhere.
After a while however, it became a pain to carry around all the lenses, dust blowers and wot not which is why I stopped bringing it around - especially on overseas trips.
Was thinking of buying a new SLR but decided to invest the money in a new lens instead - probably this one.
A new SLR would get me live preview, bigger/brighter LCD, self cleaning and ability to take 2 zillion frames per second and at a higher resolution - all features which are definitely nice to have but would rather spend the 100000 yen on a new lens.
I do hear that digital SLR's have a life span of X number of shutter counts - is that true? @.@
