    Hey everyone. I am so excited. I just got back from my local mom & pop photography store. Today they had a special even where a bunch of photographers gather as sub-vendors to sell their gear. I saw Liecas, Hasselblads, and a ton of stuff. Well last week my 50mm 1.8 II broke in half so I had originally gone to replace it. Well one of the sub-vendors had the mark I version from the early 90s! He sold it to me for $70 with a lens hood! Also for fun I went into the store it self to find a 20D body with less than 5,000 shutter actuations for sale for $650! I traded in my XT and kit lens for $300 and paid the $350 difference and now I'm shooting with a 20D and a 50mm 1.8 that has distance scales. Quite a step up(for me). Also if you're reading this and have a kit lens you can ship me, that'd be great, I miss the wide end of the spectrum and I know several people are willing to let those go for pennies on the dollar.
