    Personally, I am going to wait for the reviews to come in on this...

    Amazon.com: Canon Digital Rebel XSi 12MP Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens (Black): Camera & Photo

    ...before I make a purchase. I bought my wife a Canon 20d a few years ago, but we need a second camera for backup and also so I'm not bored while she's out taking pictures.

    Too rich for my blood, DRice. I have to justify my purchase to both my checkbook and the ability to take pictures at even an amateur level. :

    Hopefully with the help of the challenge threads I will someday reach the point of mediocrity!

    Mediocrity is what I strive towards. I mean, why shoot for standards you can't achieve, right?

    Default I did it...

    Do you think I've gone to far?

    I did it.

    Guilty as charged.

    I did it.

    It was me, right or wrong.

    I did it.

    Yeah.



    Now I've just gotta wait a couple weeks till it gets here.

    Oooohhhhhhhh SNAP!

    Full frame is awesome, you are going to love it. The one downside is not having quite as much reach, but everything else makes it worth it. You going to keep the old body?



    Jealous congrats!

    Yeah. I think so.

    It took a lot of rationalization to convince myself I was worthy of owning a tool that capable. Fact is, I'm still not quite sure about it. It helps that I've seen much improvement in my own skill level in the last year (mostly due to the practice I'm getting shooting for the DSLR thread and the Challenges). It also helps that I've got a very patient, supportive, and understanding wife for whom I count my blessings on a daily basis.

    I guess the really good thing is that I've got 3-4 weeks to re-think things or change my mind before it arrives at the camera shop.

    Nice! Congratulations!

    Did you show the wife how good that 14-24mm lens looks on the front of it? You know you can't get a great suit without the tie to go with it.
