I think so too.... Although, this won't be my first SLR.... I pretty much learned how to take pictures on an SLR.... I'm just more than ready to get back to that and throw in the luxury and economy of digital processing.... wOOt!

Congrats Boog! I know you will have a great time! It is exciting to be able to get equipment that you have waited for.

I picked up my 20D yesterday and used it today. I never thought I would get to have equipment like this! Happy shooting!

Thanks guys!!!!



I'll be sure to post a few photos when I get the chance to get out and do some shooting! Work is ruling my life right now and tells me when I can and can't do anything, but I won't let that stop me!

I am sure you are the proud owner of the 350 XT. How is it going? I can see that smile on your face. Regards. Jaki.

I just ordered my new XT on Wednesday and it was delivered yesterday! I played with it for most of last night until my wife started to get agitated. But I brought it with me into the office today so I can give it a workout at lunch!

I picked up the standard kit through Dell and then hit up Best Buy during lunch yesterday and picked up two SanDisk Ultra II 1GB CF cards and a UV filter. I've been eying the battery grip though. I might order one of those later this week.

I finally got it yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This thing is sweet!!!! Weather has been pretty rough, but I'm gonna try and take it out today and just see what I can do with i t if the rain holds off... It's a really really gray day out, but I'm gonna try to make the best of it...



One question... Does anyone know how to turn the audiable "beep" volume up for the AF? Still reading the manual and stuff like that to learn all the stuff.... I'm gonna try some different settings and such... If anyone has any recommendations on what settings to set things to, they would be greatly appreciated!



Thanks alot!!!! I can't wait to get out shooting with this thing!!!
