OK, I'm interested in getting into real professional photography... What is the best camera for a beginner out there? I've only heard of the EOS series... Give me opinions.
For a real professional shooting digitally:
1Dn/1DmkII if you're doing sports/weddings/action
1DsMKII if you can cope with 3 FPS

If you're a beginner learning, get:
1) a flashmeter... with a spotmeter if you can.
2) one strobe on a stand
3) the camera doesn't matter. As long as it has manual controls and a hot shoe for flash attachments.

You can learn a lot with this:

Alternatively - get a cheap (read 600$) dSLR and you can start investing in real professional lenses which will last you for the years to come.
