My first digital camera has been a Fujifilm MX-600 Zoom. With a tiny 1.3 megapixel this has been my first digital camera. Since 2004 I'm a Canon shooter. Currently I use the 5D MKIII and the 5D MKII together with the 17-40L f4.0, 24-70L f2.8, 70-200L 2.8 IS MKII.

If you start buying a SLR you'll end up with a lot of gear. You'll get the camera, some additional lenses, a flash and so on. Every couple of months you need new larger bags to fit everything into. After buying and selling a lot of bags I currently use the bag system of Think Tank Photo. Instead of having one dedicated bag for everything you can combine the components you need. In addition I got a huge backpack from Tamrac in case I'll have to carry everything with me.
