I just wanted to extend a big thank-you to everyone here in these forums. I've been lurking over the past few days while deciding what camera to buy and have found this site to be the most helpful and informative of them all.
I ended up deciding on the Canon 350D (Digital Rebel XT) camera and also picked up a couple of the SanDisk Ultra II 1GB CF cards. The reviews and discussions here helped me immensely.
You guys also saved me from buying my camera from WAWA Digital / Starlight Photo. That would have been a nightmare in itself.
In any case, thanks to all for making this a great community.
