    I got my Canon 30D from adorama!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! after 4+ months of research and wanting a DSLR, I feel that I put in more than enough research time and know exactly what I have bought! I got it for $699 with the 18-55 kit lens, while yes I know kit lenses are the greatest... It will be a great starter lens till I can get the 50mm1.8 and a nice zoom lens. Just thoguht I would share my excitment!

    Thank you to everyone who answered all my questions about different camera options, I appreciate your patcience with me!

    Well now I just have to wait till Monday or Tuesday for it to arrive, I picked this weekend because I will be at the NASCAR race out camping so I wont be sitting around with a tracking number watching every move it makes! haha


    :heart: 30D

    Nah I just ordered it today, I leave tomorrow for the races and wont be back till Monday. I did the UPS 3 day select for the reason that they dont deliver on Saturdays, no one will be home and I dont want it sitting outside all weekend.

    I will have my best friend who lives around the corner checking the house anyways so if there is a box by some odd reason I am sure she will bring it in :)

    Congrats on the 30D. I just got my 40D from Adorama last week. I think you're really gonna love that 30D...a lot of my friend were shooting with 30Ds until they moved up to 5Ds.

    Very nice choice, the 30D is a great body.

    I love my Canons... they really are God's gift to photography. :)

    I can't wait to see your pics.

    My suggestion is to skip the EF 50mm f/1.8 and get the EF 50mm f/1.4 instead. I have a Nifty Fifty and I can't wait to get a f/1.4 to replace it. The Nifty Fifty is cheap and it feels cheap and it performs cheap. It's a nice starter lens and the pictures it takes are 'okay', but if you're going to stick with photography do yourself a favor and get the f/1.4 instead...I think you'll be happier in the long run.
