    Microsoft was kind enough to give me 30% off a new DSLR setup. Got an XTi, battery grip, 3 batts, remote shutter, 2gb card, and the kit lens (which I'll sell) for $350AR, and bought a tamron 18-200 for $140AR.

    I'm pretty excited about the tamron actually for the price. It's gotten mixed reviews but all of the sample pics I've seen speak more loudly than people online comparing it unfavorably to L glass (surprise). The range is epic and from what I can tell the sharpness and distortion are acceptable for my non professional use. I am good at PP'ing fortunately :mamoru::o

    I'll be buying an 1.8/50 eventually since I liked my last one a lot.

    anyways just here to say :hay:

    I just bought an XTI setup from an OT'er (minus lens and flash) and it should be delivered next week. Picked up a flash from another ot'er and it should be here next week as well. Just received a 1.8 50 mm from Amazon, can't wait to try it out.

    My first time with a DSLR. Just sold my Panasonic FZ10 and filters and assorted crap for 100 bucks. I need to get my XG-M fixed... Shutter advance lever goes halfway and then stops, and I'm hoping it can be repaired. Eventually I'll shoot with the DSLR and the XG-M and develop / scan 35mm B&W.

    80 bucks versus 350 bucks, yeah I don't think it'll be worth the difference.
