    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.
