A Listmania! list by JamesW (USA)
The list author says: "I would like to present a list to you. I see many people wanting to get a DSLR but don't know quite what they want, or what they need. So this list is for you. Lists related to this one would be the "DSLR accessories to get you going" List coming soon."
Canon EOS 5D Mark II 21.1MP Full Frame CMOS Digital SLR Camera with EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens
1.  Canon EOS 5D Mark II 21.1MP Full Frame CMOS Digital SLR Camera with EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens by Canon
The list author says:
  "This started the HD Video DSLR Revolution.  Huge Sensor size for those poster prints.  Also is full-framed which lets you get a wider view from lenses (Not cropped)  Not the fastest burst rate (not too shabby though), but excels in everything else, especially low-light fast-action photography where you need a really high ISO setting with the least amount of noise.  Comes with walk-around lens."
