Alright, it's here!

  1. Okay, see? I told you - no more "What lens?" questions!

    I made my purchase today. 20D 18-55 kit, 420EX flash, RS-80N3
    remote and a 2GB CF card. I paid a little over $200 more than I
    would have paid thru B&H, but I try my best to support local
    business when I can, and Precision Camera here in Austin has always
    been a good shop for me.

    Just wanted to thank everyone that has helped out with feedback for
    my questions in recent weeks.

    Now it's time to dig into everything and test it out! I'll try to
    get something posted here once I've figured out what I'm doing!

    Austin, TX
  2. Very cool. Sounds like a good kit.
    Good way to start.
  3. Damned good pricing, too. I also like to buy locally, and not just for the ease of return.

    Shoot lots of stuff at lots of apertures/speeds to test it, make your own decisions on what's good, ENJOY
  4. Congrats, I also live here in Austin. I've heard good things about Precision but haven't made it over there myself. I'll have to check them out.

  5. Where's the question? What knowledge was imparted by this?
  6. Thanking people for all their kind help is a worthy post. I know the forum isn't really set up for kindness but it's certainly always
    welcomed...good go John...
  7. >> Okay, see? I told you - no more "What lens?" questions!

    I fear that with only the kit lens, these questions will soon pop up again :)

    Happy shooting,
  8. yeah, get yourself 50mm1.8f - your life will never be the same again :)

    Well done! Have fun! I don't want to spoil the party, but try and get yourself a decent lens as the lenses that come in a kit are usually "consumer" lenses that don't offer the highest optical quality. Ofcourse, depends on how big you are going to enlarge your prints, but to start with, I'd recommend to get yourself one of those excellent and decently priced primes like the EF 50 f/1.8 or the EF -100 f/2.0 . I've been using these two lenses combined with the 17-40 f/4 and they all produce excellent results even if I print large. Good luck!
  10. "yeah, get yourself 50mm1.8f - your life will never be the same again"

    Yup I have to agree. I got one.....and my kid left home for good.
  11. The EF 50/1.8 II is an evil plot by canon to get us addicted to primes and L zooms! LOL
  12. I think their evil plot is working!
