Canon 40D?? I'm SO envious! I have had my eye on that one for awhile... Cant decide between that and the Nikon. I've done my homework and it is a good, solid, semi-pro kit! What lens did you get with it?? You MUST let me know what you think when it arrives!
Hey SG!You into photography too?? *faints*Yeah I upgraded the standard kit lens (which I hear isn't all that fantastic) to the 17-85mm lens. I think what tipped me to the Canon 40D as opposed to the Nikon D40X, or D80, was the live view capability and the 6.5fps vs 3fps. I guess it was a little more chunkier than the Nikons, but hey I'm a bloke, I can handle chunky, although I feel that women might struggle with it! The Nikon D300 also looked pretty good, but it would've really stretched my budget.I can't believe it's still not here yet!!!Arrrrrghhhh... PS - I'll be sure to let you know how I go... and I'm sure you'll see many photos on my Flickr account and in here in the coming weeks... stay tuned! ;o)
Nice choice on the lens! Glad to see that you are having fun getting to know your new camera. Yes, I play around with digital photography and Photoshop quite a bit. I don't have a Flickr account attached to this "handle" since some of my shots are publicly known, and would blow my "Top Secret Blogger Identity"--LOL! Email me for a link and I'll share.
