Used but LN Lowepro CompuTrekker AW Black for $60 on local CL and love it. It's roomy and comfortable.

Maybe an estate sale. Shooter dies, executor thinks it's old and deprecated because it's not a compact P&S.

I just picked up a Nifty Fifty for $50 off here :D

Also decided to buy his Sigma 28-70 2.8-4 for $50...not the world's greatest lens, but I'm about to travel to Korea and I can't find a decent 16-35L and I sold my 17-40L...the Sigma is my "in case I still don't have a 16-35 by the time I leave, I'll have something to slap on the front of the camera for taking pics of my plane and the airports" haha

Vivitar 19-35mm for $57 on ebay. I wasn't expecting much, but it turned out to be a fantastic wide angle lens on a full frame.
