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 ..

Sounds nice!

Make sure to post ALL your Honeymoon pics... :nervous:
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...

We don't really need to know how much you paid for it :lick: Nice toy :D
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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
