Cool you got it. I'll let you try out some of my lenses so you can see it's the lens that makes the picture. I'm thinking about selling my stuff too because it's just sitting there.

I would sell it because I'm not using it. There are a lot of other things I could do with the money instead of storing it some bags in the closet. If wish Newbie used a Canon, he like camera toys too.

I think if you took the time to clean off the bacon grease your old cam would work like gold! Take care of it.

I was looking at the new xsi's as far as i can tell they are just a dumbed down 1d processor in a rebel chasis. i'm just using a XT, 8mp processor, but when it comes to pictures it really doesnt mater if you have the old 6mp or the new 15+mp cammeras, if the image is in focus, and you have a good lense, the shot will come out awsome.

Even if you have a 15mp cammera, you can still take horrible photos. learn your fstop settings, aperture size, and exposure times you can't go wrong...




Does anyone have a nice 100-300mm macro only lense (not one of thoes crappy combos that arnt good for either macro or standard shots) they would be willing to part with?

also consider the quality of processor , the size and grade of sensor , and all that . Frame integrity is super important . BUT glass is where the money is at . My last lens cost me almost $1100 . for a 80-200

your 80-200 I am assuming is a f2.8 Does it have the VR in it or was this the older pull zoom?
