    Hey guys I wanted to share my newest toy!!

    Have a look I got a nice package deal, I know I paid slightly too much for both the battery pack and shipping but I did it so that I would be guaranteed I have it here before we go on our honeymoon and if at all possible wanted to get everything from one place, sadly I wasnt able to get everything so I posted the remaining pieces below the big order....
    The 70-200mm is the "L" or proffessional series lens, since I will eventually be buying one of Cannons True "Professional Camera Bodies" such as the 5D or 1D..

    Comments.. Thoughts?
    After I get to use the camera extensively on my honeymoon I will post a review

    Unless I was going to be taking pics professionally; I would never pay that much for a camera ..

    RIIIGHT... are you trying to get me "bobitized"??
    No thanks, I like him right where he is, and don't want to think about him being removed...

    True, but I know there are other serious photo enthusiasts, and I posted them because those people looking for a good DSLR camera may re-think getting one, now that the prices have begun dropping so fast :D

    I am going to do portraits on the side... my father did it for years on the side while he was in the air force, and as the demand increases, so does the cost associated... so I figure my hobby can pay for itself...

    Plus, I am an avid nature photographer and my non DSLR could not get me close enough to many of my subjects...

    :)

    If I had the money I would for sure. My Roommate has a nice camera that I would love to use but when I steal it I don't know what the heck is going on lol But for now I will use my good old point and shoot. :)

    I hope you enjoy your new camera.
