just ordered a new camera. i won a insect photo contest, the prize adobe photo shop CS2 "full version" I returned it and used the money to buy a Pentax ist DL and a sigma 70-300mm lens. just in time as my Minolta is dieing slow death. I should have the ist in a few days. Could have got the d50 "every one has the d50 so i figured i would be different":lmao: .
