Irish-n-Zwack Me, too, if it's still alive and well.

Canon 50D with several lenses from 18 mm wide angle to 100 mm macro and a couple of others. My "go to" lens for everyday shooting is 28-165mm, plus I have a 18-250 mm and a really crappy 70-300 mm lens that I never use.

Zoomy Ooh, can I join?

This is my most infamous shot and was taken with my Canon 20D with 100mm Canon prime...I think it's an F1.8. I won the League of MI Bicyclists photo contest with this last year and it was also featured in last year's Co-Motion bike catalog.

These I took with my G16. The lighthouse is local, the fish are while snorkeling off of Key West (I have a nifty little dry bag that worked really well...if only the water hadn't been so rough and cloudy with debris that day).

Wasserpest After being a Canon shooter most of my life, I am actually jumping ship, getting rid of my dslr and lenses, to be replaced by a meek Olympus 4/3. Why? 2 words: weight & size. There are other pro's and con's, but those two stand out.
06-01-2014 04:33 PM

Late? How so? I've had a Canon for awhile now albeit a P&S in 2007. I've been wanting a DSLR for some time now, but didn't have the funds available. Now I do and decided to get a used kit to save some $$$. Should get it mid next week .

I've been a Nikon fan since the mid '70s and have an old F2 film camera (doesn't work now) . I'm going with Canon as there is a whole lot more third party software to work with Canon than with Nikon. I'm planning on doing a full spectrum mod by removing the IR blocking filters over the sensor. Then I can do IR and astronomy photography. I'll just put an equivalent UV/IR blocking filter on when I do normal light photography. I still like Nikon, but they're more spendy and I don't see any advantage over Canon. I'm a bang for the buck kind of guy and Canon is the better value for what I want to do IMHO.

The prices finally came down low enough for me to afford these. I'll probably have to get a memory card and a carrying case for it too. Can't wait until it gets here.
You are late to the game, lol.
It is a nice camera, a lot of learning though, if you want to impress others.
Mine is the kiss X4, the T2i japanese version, bought it before the T2i appeared in the US.

Know how to play with the light, is the fundamental, this apply to any dslr.
