I'm trying to choose a digital camera that would better suit me to do photo journalistic work. I would have about US$ 5 500 to purchase a camera plus lenses. I have in the past shot a lot of medium and large format film and spent too many days and nights locked in darkrooms printing (and have printed digitally before, but always from scanned film), but have very little experience with digital cameras and now find myself a bit overwhelmed. I have read about the Canon 40D, Canon EOS 5D and Nikon D300 but don't know what the best option is. The photographs would eventually be used in magazines, newspapers and on the web. Are the full frame cameras (EOS 5D) a better option? Or would one of the other two cameras be enough for my needs? What would be your choice of camera and lens withing that budget? Any help is appreciated.
