    OK, so I did it...I clicked the "Buy it Now" button on the Cameta.com auction at eBay.

    So, that means, that by week's end, I should be the proud of a Nikon D70s!!!

    I'm so excited, but a little scared...I mean, what if I stop enjoying taking pictures? What if I get it and I realize that I'm only good because I've had the crutch of a point-and-shoot? What if I drop it????

    So many things running through my head, but I'm still overjoyed that I got it!

    YEAH FOR JO COSE!!!!!!!

    Thanks, Corry...that helped.

    Thanks Corry and Alex, I'm sure I won't either, but it's the second most expensive thing I've ever bought. I've been out of school for 3 years now, and making a professional's salary, but I still forget that I actually have an income (I guess that's what 5+ years living below the poverty level does to ya:) ).

    Anyway, thanks for the kind words, and I'll be posting as soon as I get it and charge the batteries!

    Congrats! You'll love it! When Aubrey gets home he'll tell you his own story about when he bought his D70 ;)

    Did it involve throwing up when he realized how much money he spent? Cuz, right now, I could totally relate to that! :lol:

    Before I got mine, I felt the same way...what happens now that the crutch of camera blame is gone? Well, believe me, no crutch necessary when you can actually achieve what you wanted to in the first place. Congrats, and next DC meetup, I'll have the worst camera! :lol:

    Joe, I'm not so sure...everyone keeps telling me that the D70 and the D70s are the same, so we'll say we'll be even.

    Alison, I'm not really freaking out, just having a hard time adjusting to paying so much money for one thing! But it's all good...I'm gonna get, and love it and hug it and call it george...erm...no, I mean I'm gonna get it and love it and take tons of awesome pics with it, and try to get my money's worth within 6 months (like I did with my PowerShot)!

    It's only a slight advantage ;)
    You'll have a better screen (2" instead of 1.8")
    You can get a wired cable release
    So yeah, but you get that nifty s! hehe

    Mayhaps mon ami, but you still have more talent than I do, so you'll still get better pics :lol:

    Are we still getting those remotes?

    Oh, BTW, speaking of having way more talent than me, can you post or PM me that info on the music we were talking about at the last meetup?

    Thanks.
