    Well...after a few shipping delays, I finally got my new 300D. Now mind you, this is my first SLR camera, and my first attempts at "real" photography...with a "real" camera. I'm still getting used to it, and learning....but I thought I'd take it for a small test drive. And took my first pic....

    Nothing special....just a flower....but I was really impressed with the quality. Can't wait to develop my skills, and start taking some really nice shots!

    It's much more fun twiddling the knobs!

    I just discovered the lens I like using most (and my best lens so far) needs to be calibrated, which would seem to account for many a screwy pic taken with it. :squint: It's been sent off to be fixed, so I'm really looking forward to getting it back! Then I might finally have some shots I feel like posting.:wiggle:

    I love my 300D. And now that I have my 28-135mm lens, it's even better. Now I just need to either buy a new 70-300mm lens, or blow the money and get the 70-200 f4 L :o
