    Congratulations. But don't buy any lenses without a lot of research, because Canon makes plenty of garbage lenses in addition to those great L lenses which mere mortals can't afford. The trick is to find Canon's lenses that have close to L lens quality for not much more than garbage lens prices. I don't remember what they are anymore, but there are some excellent websites (not specific to Canon) that can give you a lot of guidance.

    it doesnt have live view does it?
    actually it does but ill likely never use it.....why in the hell would you use live view when running an SLR? granted i never use the view finder on my PowerShot 1100 but its the size of a deck of cards....only time i would prolly use live view is if its tied down to a solid tripod.....otherwise, normal shooting position provides alot more support for running a heavy camera like this

    cmm..........

    havent messed with raw much but thats cause there has been no reason for it with the newspaper and my personal use has been for my own grins and rarely if ever print anything out, just havent tried messing with Raw yet.....and your right.....that massive screen on the back attracts fingerprints like mad.....

    Bruce.....wouldnt dream of dropping $400+ on a lens without reading up on it.......actually likely wouldnt have purchased this one separate from the camera.....most of what ive read is ppl complaining about it as a $400 lens......however those that purchase it as what basically boils down to be $200 when purchased with the camera have really liked it.....

    I was able to purchase a Kimber Ultra Covert with my bonus check to carry off-duty. What a wonderful little pistol!

    various Kimbers are what i happen to be looking at, happy as hell with my Kimber 84M Montana in 260 thats fast becoming my favorite hunting rifle, swear ive had a 44 mag revolver that weighed more .....was looking at a CDP II and a steel framed Pro Carry II, course those were the only small Kimbers i found in stock at the two gun shops.......gotta decide if i want to go with aluminum or steel frame....the CDP feels like it will be easier to carry day in and day out but the steel framed Pro Carry feels like it will be easier to shoot due to the weight which means ill likely practice more....think i want to stick with the 4 inch barrel though....heard the 3 inch micro compacts tend to be more finicky on ammo and such......longer sight radius can only help in a bad situation too.......
