comment Do I really need a fast 50mm lens?
Since you have a Pentax, what you really absolutely need is a 55mm F/1.4, 50mm is so unoriginal ;) Seriously, see the related questions suggest by Matt.

comment What are the benefits of Av vs. Tv vs. Manual exposure modes?
I know two professionals who have taped their mode-dial to Aperture-Priority mode. I use it at least 85% of the time.

Honestly, #1 does not matter and you probably wont find an answer. #2 is a good question though.

comment What should I look for in a second-hand DSLR with a nice long zoom lens?
@Billy - Yes, I was going for those that you would normally find used, so not the D7000, 7D, K-5, etc.

comment What should I look for in a second-hand DSLR with a nice long zoom lens?
Should have been more specific, Live-View is a gimmick on most DSLRs :) As far as I am concerned, only Canon (XSi onwards) and Sony (A33 onwards) get it completely right. Still, I even use it occasionally on my Pentax DSLRs to see anything at all while using an ND400 filter.

comment How weather-resistant is the Canon EOS 600D?
The 60D is not weather-sealed.

comment Can photographs from a client shoot, but not accepted by them, be used for stock photography?
Ask a lawyer. It will depend on your local laws, the contract with your client and subjects in your photos (ex: if they required model releases, etc). I do not think you can get a straight answer here.

comment How weather resistant is the Canon EOS 7D?
And I thought I was the only one who buried his camera under snow to try it out! :)

comment Does Av mode on my Canon DSLR take IS into account when deciding shutter speed and ISO?
Both Nikon and Olympus work by specifying the minimum shutter-speed. Pentax works be specifying Slow, Standard or Fast which maintains a different shutter-speed depending on the focal-length. I do not know of any maker who uses stabilization to decide on which shutter-speed is can use.

No, but I have experienced snow like we get in Canada :)

comment What does this switch do on my macro lens?
Yes, obviously. It refers to the distance from the sensor to the subject, which is almost at the back of the camera.
