Well I had a pretty good idea what I wanted and what my budget was. I was at a the Camera Store where I used to buy all my photo and black room equipment. It was like almost 20 years ago and the Owner still remebered who I was, after all he made a killing of me and i was there at least 3 times a week. I knew after reading everything here and elsewhere what I wanted. Anyway here it the pick of some of it, I also picked up a Manfrotto 190D tripod. Cannon D40 Camera Canon EF 24 - 70L mm F/2.8 USM Sigma 70-200 F2.8 APO EX DG Macro Sigma 30 mm F1.4 Some CF media, 2 Optex Digital Filters, Flash, Battery Grip and a new Camera bag. I saved $1300 off the entire price and the that was with the Sigma and CanonD40 both already a $100 off, so I saved $1500 plus what ever the taxes would have been. I could not be more pleased with my purchase and the deal I got. Then again I never buy anything unless I can get a good deal. So guess over the next while I will be readng manuals and trying it all out. I must thank this board for a lot of good opinions and such a treasure trove in the old posts.
