    Found a guy online who was selling of some old gear (one of the reasons I went with nikon.. I can use old gear on the new bodies!)

    Got the following from him (and they are working GREAT)

    Nikon FG (film camera).. never know, I might give film a whirl
    Nikon 50mm 1.8 E Series
    Tamrom 70-210 3.8 (this is the main reason I bought the stuff)
    Nikon SB-18 (not really that useful to me, as a have 3 great flashes
    a few filters

    Got it all for $50. I'm mostly excited about the Tamron.. but, it'll be nice to have a back up 50mm.. just incase..

    it drives me crazy.. i search the darn thing many times every day.. just incase.. I was 20 mins late on getting a 10-20mm sigma for 300 bucks.. that really bummed me out.. but, I still love kijiji.. I even got my 2 backdrops off there.. for 40 bucks (20 bucks each) and they were brand new..

    best thing about kijiji is that you can post your stuff for free and people are good when you wanna pick up the item, located locally.
