    any site that is ridiculous enough to rate themselves on resellerratings.com with this transparent bullshit i'd be weary of:

    "Beach Camera has got to be one of the best companies I have ever dealt with when making online purchases. I shop online all the time and their service, communication and delivery are top notch! I bought a new digital camera from Beach and not only were they they cheapest price around (including used on Ebay!), they had free shipping and I got the item in four days! Holy Cow! The product came just as promised, well packaged and brand new. I will definitely make Beach Camera my store of choice on all future camera/photo equipment purchases!!! Thanks again."

    I dunno I haven't seen any 40D's for under 1100 when I bought my 30D, so I thought it was a good deal. But I guess Im wrong.

    Actually, it is a pretty good deal.

    You must be accustomed to buying from shady companies if you think it's not. :o

    they really do provide great service. shipping was super prompt. sent out like an hour after i ordered. wanted to return something and they sent over a UPS label free of charge. no hassles at all.

    i ordered my p&s from buydig a couple years ago and had great service except that the verified by visa part was screwed up. i forgot the password i had used, so my bank said that the purchase wouldn't go through, but they processed it anyways. the camera did show up quick though. good thing i didn't reorder it from somewhere else like i almost did when the verified by visa thing didn't go through :o

    Well good deal or not, Im happy. Like I said when I bought my 30D I couldn't find a 40D new from a reputable seller (non ebay) for less than 1100. So anyone want a 30D with 2600 clicks? :big grin:

    Its cool, but I find that it only focus's on a small area and I cant figure out why? Like the DOF is super narrow? I think thats the correct term (still a noobie) Maybe its just me not knowing how to use the lens? HAHAHAHA Here is an example or 2....

    it's cuz you're shooting at 2.8.

    at that distance, 2.8 is soooooo shallow of a dof.

    Get some super bright light on that $$, then open up the aperture to f8 or 11.

    I always try to use a flash when i'm shooting macro to make sure I can get the dof exactly how I want it.

    or just use a tripod and leave the shutter open... like f11 for 1sec. or some shit.

    Ya I had a picture of my keys that I had a 1 second F10 or 11 and it worked out much better. But I deleted the pic cuz I was just screwing around.
