Dudes and dudettes, thanks to all who have helped me struggle through my indecision. I was truly torn on what to get. Started thinking the XTi was the way to go but while I loved the features, the ergos just didn't sell me. Enter the Nikon D80/Canon 30D(20D)/Pentax K10D debate for me. In the end, I knew I wanted the 30D despite it being the most expensive of the group. Just like the Canon ergos and IQ the most. That said, I took the plunge this morning and ordered one up. Should arrive in time for the weekend and I simply can't wait!

FYI, I went with a refurb from Adorama with the kit lens for $950! Seemed like a good deal to me given what I've seen and Adorama gets good reviews so....giddyup!

I'm going through the same wait now (for my 5D) so I know what you mean.

Enjoy and have fun when it arrives!

Congrats and good luck with your new purchase. This weekend is going to seem like it'll never get here.

Congrats!

I bought a 20D in March (same camera, I won't bother going into details about the difference). I walked out of the store, took it out of the box, powered up and started shooting.

You'll love it.

okay, you guys are making the wait even tougher now :D. I can't wait and will definitely post some thoughts on it once I've shot a bit. I have been switching between my S2IS and a friend's 20D recently and think the 30D is just going to make me freak. Thanks for keeping my enthusiam so high!
