    :h5: Now get some glass :cool:

    Tamron 17-50 or 28-75, most end up with the 17-50.

    Your bf is going to feel inferior to your 30D :mamoru:


    Oh, and pics of you? :bigthumb:

    I would say a used flash and GI triggers would be a better investment than a new lens. If I were to do it over that's how I would've done it...

    I kinda got F'd on an auction but oh well. I bought some motorcycle fairings when it was only on 20% off. But at least it's a little something.

    i got a free tripod a while back from my friend at best buy

    its nothing special but for free i cant complain. its best buy brand and employees get that shit super cheap so he didnt even bother asking me for money.

    unless he can get stuff like 50% off Best Buy's prices, you're better off buying online.

    Best Buy still charges like $550 for a 580EX II.. which I paid $350 for 9 months ago at Amazon.com. Best Buy's lens prices are sometimes DOUBLE what I've seen online.

    The Tamron 17-50mm is close to Amazon price. See what he can get that for.
