All this DSLR talk reminds me of how even the more affordable models still cost hundreds, not including lenses. Too rich for my blood right now.
I'm still more concerned about the input lag than anything; the research I've done on nice plasma panels like the Panasonic VT50 reveals that they have over a frame of input lag, and the less I think about those LG plasmas over at the university game room, the better. (People somehow play fighting games on those things without complaining too much about the blatantly obvious input lag...) I go look up displays with low input lag, as in 16ms or less, and they're almost all LCDs.
I know what you mean
I finally got my first Dslr about 2-3 months ago (Canon T2i). Slowly collecting some lenses for it, but OMG it is expensive. Except for a few cheap kit lenses and some primes, pretty much every lenses costs more than the camera itself.
It makes head-fi look affordable
Still, you can get great shots without a DSLR. I have a soft spot for digital super zooms, and I've gotten some nice shots with those types of camera.
It's nice to see some of the manufacturers putting some bigger sensors in the cameras outside their DSLR lines.
I'm sure the list of HDTVs with input lag < 16ms is pretty small.
I think input lag is just something modern gamers have gotten used to. Espeically when you mix it in with online lag - they probably don't notice it much.
Do NOT get the Magni amp for the AD700. They will blow up.
Should have used some garbage monoprice ones.
