As I have mentioned, my birthday is coming up. And I am getting half a Canon Digital Rebel. Half? Well... I have to cover half the cost. But you know what? This is one of the best birthday gifts in years. Rivaling the hiking boots I got 4 years ago. Why? Because this is something I will use often and enjoy using.
I have missed using my SLR so much. But when I had a digital Point and Shoot, I couldn't see spending the time and money on film and developing. Now I can dig out my old lenses, and marvel at the 1.6 multiplier, so my 300mm lense is now the equivalent of a 480mm lens. And how the crappier of my lenses will no longer show the vingetting.
Okay. I'm done bragging and showing off for the moment.
