Get the Canon EOS 1DS to start with and then pick out a few lenses to go with it.

First thing you should do is ignore Setzler! :P

What camera you get depends on what you want to take pictures of, what you think you will want to eventually take pictures of, and your budget. If money is no option then you could go with Setz's choice, otherwise you'll need to find a camera that has the most features for your budget.

Best advice is determine how much you have to spend and look at cameras in those ranges, then research what features they have and what you want. When you've narrowed it down to a few cameras you can ask here and I'm sure people will offer suggestions and tell you the good/bad points of each.

A good place to start researching would be dpreview.

Good luck!
