which go up to ISO3200 and its also the smallest and lightest but if you
don't need ISO3200, then the EOS 300D is the cheapest and most widely
available. D70, 10D, *ist D are the next price rung up with the EOS 20D,
Dynax 7D perched on top of that. I assume, since you're mentionning pro-
sumer gear such as P&S and ZLR that you can't afford an EOS 1D Mark II,
which is certainly the class leader. The smaller pixel DSLRs - both of
Olympus's, any of Sigma's - aren't as good at low light work. Having got
one, then a 50mm f1.4 lens is your next port of call with an 85mm f1.4 lens
close behind (vying with a 70-200 f2.8, I expect).
