Its so amazing that this wonderful piece of technology can now be had for $1000 or less! I cannot wait until spring to give mine a good workout! Unfortunately, I am not too fond of shooting in 10 degree winter weather!

But it is coming up on being 6 years old now, but its crazy how many people still use a 6 year old camera. Looks like Canon really did know what they were doing!

From what I've read online the following is year vs serial number.

2008: 3xxxxxxx; 2007: 2xxxxxxx; 2006: 1xxxxxxx; 2005: 0xxxxxxx

Amen to that, I can't wait to wear nothing but a t-shirt and a pair of jeans when going outside. I look like a polar explorer when I go out to buy a pack of smokes...
