I have been lurking for quite some time and decided that I might as well join and post now that I got my new camera I am so excited I have been waiting for a year to get it and the day finally arrived yesterday. It almost didn't happen as bestbuy was completely sold out on the Canon XTi. My husband suggested that we check costco out. I am so glad that we did! They have a really good deal going on right now. Canon XTi EF S18-55 lens EFS 75-300mm extra battery 1G memory card UV Haze Filter Canon camera bag I hope I typed the lens types right. I have mostly been point and shoot and am really excited to learn about having more control of the pictures that I take. I look forward to getting to know you all better!
