    I shoot with a very similar setup,I shoot with the canon 1D. i've done alot of work with the 20d and 40d, the 40d is pretty sweet, how you liking that humongous thing they call a screen on the back of that guy haha

    congrats its a great camera.

    no new lenses yet other than the Canon EF 28-135 IS USM that came with it(which seems like a sweet lens, and a hell of an upgrade over the couple of low end Sigma's i have been using)........if i pic up a few more carpet jobs i think ill find me a decent dedicated macro for plant and critter photos and maybe a ring light..........

    That screen is bigger than my TV. I've always wanted a SLR camera to hook up to my telescope.

    haha yeah that screen is massive, I used one for slide shooting one time and it seemed like the screen was so big I couldnt keep from getting fingerprints on it

    do you shoot RAW format or Jpeg?

    I've been waiting to get a really decent macro lens, their pretty expensive. the lens you got with yours is a really good midrange lens you can do most anything with it then you get specialty lenses for the really ridiculous stuff like cp shooting

    ring light, that'd be a pretty luxurious thing to have how about a really tiny tripod and a pocket wizard for strobe lighting

    again thats a really sweet pickup
