Here is my question. I have a rebel xs and I also drive a semi for a living. I'm about to go back on the road in a day or so and wondered how much of a beating this camera will take. Picture driving an old 1975 pickup for an idea of the ride. Most of the time it is an ok ride but 1 out of 18 tires get worn a little off and it shakes. About 10 bumps a second With a bad tire. Pot holes are bad sometimes. Really I guess it's a shakey ride. I took my camera out with me last time for 1 month straight and no problems. I'm wondering for those who always transit their equipment like IS lenses if there is a problem with the durability with the equipment. I don't want to ruin a good lens or the body itself but I get to see some incredible things that I would like to start shooting. I spoke with someone a while back who used a xsi o a truck but lost contact. I do have a soft side bag wich will absorb some.
