    Again, thanks to everyone who gave me advice in my "It's time for a digital camera - and I'm not happy" thread.

    I got my camera.

    I decided on the Canon 10D. I really liked the feel of it. I'll probably be upset about not getting the wider lens of the Rebel, but the sad truth was that I left ugly drool marks all over the 28-200 mm lens they had on display, so I would have had to buy a lens right away even if I had gone with the Rebel. I also liked the various metering options the 10D offered over the Rebel.

    I am very, very happy and think I'm going to have a whole bunch of fun. I'm certainly going to be taking more pictures than I used to.

    Oh come on, Max. There's no way I'm going to get a photo of the Loch Ness monster.

    I'm far too busy trying to photograph flying saucers.

    Congratulations Julie!

    Now that you have a 10D you must never ever go to the dpreview forum devoted to Canon lenses. Otherwise you may have to file for bankruptcy.

    So never ever click on this link:

    Canon SLR Lens Talk Forum at Digital Photography Review

    Don’t do it Julie!

    No! Don’t go there Julie!

    (Actually I bet you've already been there.)

    In that case Julie, you need one of these. [​IMG]

    Jay, thanks for the warnings but it's too late. I have already seen my impending financial doom due to Canon lenses. Max isn't helping either [​IMG]

    Fortunately no one would ever need one of these lenses with the rare exception of someone working on the Mars rover program:

    5200mm F/14

    (Check out the relative size of the camera mounted on the 5200mm lens.)

    Julie,

    You'll love the 10D. I bought my wife the DRebel and a few lenses & accessories for Christmas based on the excellent information provided to me in this thread. She is having all sorts of fun with it.

    Actually THIS forum is even worse:

    http://photography-on-the.net/forum/index.php

    Its a fantastic Canon resource and all the 'L glass' talk just makes my head swim.

    I'm still debating DRebel vs. D70, I wish there was as good a forum on the Nikon side. The 'Nikonians' forum is pretty good but not even in the same league as that Canon one...

    I hate the format of Dpreviews forums too.

    Good luck with the D10 Julie!

    Sam
