My New Toy....:)

Well, my birthday is next weekend and the SU asked me this morning what I wanted. I said that I really had no idea. He then said he had an idea and wanted to talk to me about it but if he did it would spoil the surprise. But, he thought spoiling the surprise would be ok because he wanted to make sure he got what I wanted....

This is what he got me and it is a combination of birthday present, Valentine's Day gift/whatever, and our anniversary, which is in April:



I have now forgot all about my ride for the afternoon or going to the gym!! I'll have to find time to play with it some this evening while I'm working on the beater bike!!

Nice gift!
I've been thinking about one of those for awhile now. I would love a nice DSLR to replace my old Olympus.

That thing is a piece of Shiite. I will relieve you of this burden out of the goodness of my heart. Ship it to me so I can dispose of it in a proper manner. I'll front the shipping if you need me to...

Nice gear - congratulations! I'm pretty interested in phtography (though my photographic skills and results are somewhat limited). I was close to getting a Rebel XTI last year too, but instead I went for a Nikon D40 (the 6MP version) and it was more suitable for my budget. Your camera is great, you'll enjoy it immensely!

Ok, thanks. I guess that's what I'll be someday.


Nice camera.

I think it's a staple to own a DSLR if you are:

1. A BF member.
2. A cyclist.



Rock on WP!
