Yesterday I got the following:

EF 75-300mm
Eitar Optical Polarizer

Got both for $300 at 1st Ave. Camera in Kalispell, MT. Pretty good deal on price- but need to get a tripod pretty quick! I'm a realitive novice, and bought the lens more for price than practical value. The 55-200 would have been a better purchase at my current skill level.

Anyone else familiar with Eitar?

good thinking bubb...but I think you're kinda backward. Get your self a sutdio lighting set and a flash meter first, or your model will leave you after the first session.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

I am not familiar with this adaper, but if it does not provide voltage isolation you may want to look at the Wein safesync.
Same sort of adapter but it protects your camera from overvoltages which some studio strobes can provide.

I also bought for my DRebel;

- Two extra canon batteries.....but my, isn't the battery life in these units phenominal?

- I bought a Monfrotto tripod with a 3030 head, very pleased with it.

- I added a 1.8 50 mm lens for lowlight shots, don't use it much, but glad I have it when I need it.

- As previsouly noted ad nausem, a 28-300 Tamron lens. I see Canon is coming out with a 28-300 IS lens this spring, but list is $2,400 compared to $400 for the Tamron.

- I already have the blonde model, but she complains a lot about the money I spend on lenses..........


In case you haven't seen my webpage, I need all the attention I can get.....
