    Just got it in the mail yesterday. Canon 40D with 28-135 IS lens. Took it for a test shoot today at my kids sports event at school and this is what I came up with, a few of my favorite shots. Here you can let me know if it was a good idea to get the 40D or if I should stare at it with a mad look and bang my head with it :lmao::lmao:

    I did nothing to the pics in photoshop other than the frames.

    the last one is decent. I'd say you shouldn't give the camera a mean stare, but maybe the camera should be giving you a mean stare...the camera's not the one taking the pictures :D

    honestly, the rest of them are simple snapshots in my opinion.

    The last one is great! The rest are .. less great :)

    The main subject in the first photo is cut off near the ankles. A vertical frame might have worked better

    What's with the glowing thing in the third picture? Is that someone's head?

    The shadows ruin #4.

    oh by no means was I taking these shots to come and show them as part of my work. It's more to get feedback on the performance of the camera/lens I just bought that's all :D they were ALL snapshots just trying to get them focused more than anything.
