The other day we went to our neighbors to take some shots of their girl that was going to prom. Well their were a bunch of couples and all their parents...most had point and shoots and one lady had a 350d and I said hey nice camera I have the older version ( 300d) she just blew me off. My husaband was there too and he enjoys my photo hobby but hasn't really wanted me to spend much on it. I've had my camera for more than 4 years and have been wanting to upgrade.
Well later we were all inside and someone commented on my nice big lens...just a 100mm macro but with the hood it looks much bigger and the lady with the other dslr said well my camera is one better than hers!!!! I was like holy cow did she just say that??? So later that night my husband brought over a cd I burned for them with all the pics and they were so happy to view the pic and that lady was still there and she said oh I could have burned a cd too but I just didn't have the time. She also brought up having a better camera and my husband said well ours is for sale because she is buying a new 5d ( he knows that is the one I want) So he came home and said why don't you buy that new camera you want. I was floored!!! I guess I love that snooty woman now, she just got me a new camera!!!
Now I just have to get the nerve and spend that much...it is hard to do
