I'm thinking...I could get a newer cheap DSLR or an old pro one ( like the D1X ) what do you guys think? I know the newer sensors are a lot better, but the cheap cameras are small and feel like shit (I love the big ones, especially if it has a vertical grip).
I think I might just get an F4 or F5, lol...forget digital haha
If you're looking for a more solid camera, get a used 20D or 30D. Their bodies are mostly metal, magnesium IIRC. Avoid the 10D; even though the quality was good, they had focusing issues in many of the bodies (mine was one of them, unfortunately).

You don't need 10 or 12 megapixels for good images. I shot weddings with 6mp and did just fine, and people were more than happy, even with the 24x36 poster prints.
