I get asked on occasion about a suggested rig for someone 'going pro'. This is a short list that I'll eventually split off and flesh out into a separate thread.

=
Canon 7D Body - Canon EOS 7D 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 3-Inch LCD (Body Only)

Battery - Canon LP-E6 Battery Pack for Select Canon Digital SLR Cameras - Retail Packaging

Flash - Canon Speedlite 430EX II Flash for Canon Digital SLR Cameras

Media -
SanDisk SDCFX-032G-A61 32 GB Extreme CompactFlash Memory Card 60MB/S

The above list assumes you already have a Canon camera, maybe an XSI, or a TSI and some lenses. Extra memory cards and a spare battery are a must when going pro. If you need lenses, the below is a good starter.

Bodies with Lens
Canon EOS 7D 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 3-inch LCD and 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Standard Zoom Lens

Canon EOS 7D 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 3-Inch LCD and 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS UD Standard Zoom Lens


One thing to keep in mind when upgrading to the Pro 1D or 5D systems is that the EF-S lenses are not compatible, however Canon L glass is, and is recommended for the best quality shots.
