I FINALLY ordered it

So for the past few days I was going back and forth between this website and that one to find the best deal. Then it was between used ones and new ones. What am I talking about? My new camera! I decided to go with the Canon EOS 40D and I'm pretty excited about my purchase.

I got it through Amazon with free shipping, so that means I have to wait 5-9 days for it to get here. I ordered just the body. My friend Rachel sold me her kit lens for really cheap, because I basically just need something to practice with. I can already tell you that I want a macro lens and I have my eye on the 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens. I can't wait to start taking pictures of...well...pretty much anything that comes my way!

With the camera I ordered a memory card (of course), The Photoshop Elements 6 Book for Digital Photographers (Voices That Matter), and a Crumpler 6 Million Dollar Home to hold everything...or everything that I plan on getting in the future :o)

Now all I have to do is wait for the thing to show up!

You'll love it, the book is awesome, and the bag is really nice, doesn't seem like a camera bag at all!! And of course you'll love your camera, but you already know that!! Call me when it comes in and we'll go out shooting, I kinda want to go out downtown Mt. Clemens soon.

Oh my goodness--that is a FANTASTIC camera. I would have loved to have purchased that one instead of the Rebel XS, but the 40D just wasn't in the budget :(

You will love it, and I can't wait to see pictures!
