Not as serious as it sounds. Today I gave my old 20D (along with 18-55mm IS STM that came with my 700D) to a friend. A young lady who's absolutely mad keen on photography but only had a little point and shoot. Hugs and big smiles all round.

I'm certain she'll get good use out of it.


I've been waiting for just that moment to find the right person to pass my old 20D onto.

Great! I like to see shooters pass the hobby on to someone else. Well done.

Thanks GeoKras,, I bought the 20D 2nd hand back in 2007. It's been totally reliable. I could mount a lens, slip in a CF card and just shoot. Nothing to worry about it just kept on producing the goods.

Nice to see the old girl go to a good home. I'm looking forward to seeing some of Lar's (new owner) work with my old 20D. Should be interesting coming from a P&S and smart phone.

I kept my old 300D around when I got my "new" 20D (in 2012) for my kids to borrow when a P&S or phone wasn't enough, although as the AF Sub Mirror pin was broken it was MF only, they quickly became surprisingly good at manual focus. When I got the 50D last year the 20D took over that role. It's also a handy second body for me at times. It's nice to be able to shoot an airshow now with a 100-400 or 150-600 lens on the 50D and a shorter zoom on the 20D for general shots.

I've donated several film bodies, and accompanying lenses to the Arts department of an Indiana University satellite campus. I take classes there regularly. It is nice to see my old gear in the hands of 20-somethings learning the wonder of photography.

Manual focus! Lots of folks these days don't even get the concept. There is an ad in the sale pages offering to trade a Rokinon 14mm for any UWA with AF. Poor kid doesn't even realize that at 14mm, there is almost no need for any kind of focus. I can shoot mine for an entire day and never touch the focus. It doesn't get much easier than that.

Heya,

That's the way to do it right there. Good on you, sir.

I gave away two XSi's and a 40STM and 18-55 kit lenses recently. I always shop XSi's and 40D's these days to get deals and re-gift them to budding photographers.

Very best,

That's what I love about my 10-18mm STM. At 10mm even wide open the depth of field goes on forever. I love shooting super wide for video.

Does that mean it is time to upgrade my '93 F150?

No! Not unless you want to have to replace $150~300 computer fobs, window motors, etc!

Very best, ;)

No. Its full auto only. I actually inherited it as a farm truck/wood hauler when my wife upgraded about 8 years ago. It is beat to heck, but it keeps on truckin'!

Good for you! I did the same thing with my 20D. I gave it to a photo student and she loves it.
