I just pulled the Trigger and ordered the T3i w/ 18-55mm IS Kit, f1.8 50mm, spare Battery, a couple of Sandisk 8gig class 10 MC, Lightroom3 and a couple of other odds-n-ends from B&H. This is my First DSLR but no stranger to SLRs. I up graded from a Olympus C-740.
I can't wait to get back into the Saddle from a casual shooter.

I bought my First SLR, a Canon AE-1 from the PX back in 78. 6 months later it was Stolen so I bought another AE-1. That is now in 80ft of water in Kaneohe Bay. Then I bought the AT-1. That camera taught me how to take correct exposures. I leared B&W developement as HICKAM AFB had a Photolab Free to all service members, the only thing we had to buy was Papers. The Photolab supplied all the Chemicals, equipment and help.
FF to 1996. I bought a Canon EOS ELAN II and Darkroom equipment, sold all of it in 2002.
2007, I bought the C-740.
Here it is, 2011, 54 years old and I caught the Bug, comming out of my hiatus...............

Welcome! You picked up a pretty solid kit to start out with. Be warned, the longer you hang around this place, the more you will learn, but the more money you will want to spend!

Congrats and Welcome..... The T3i is treating me quite well, and I've got those 2 lenses. Jealous over the Lightroom though.... keep telling myself DPP is all I need since my LR3 trial ran out :)


T3i, Sigma 10-20, Sigma 30 1.4, 18-55 kit, 55-250, YN-565, a few books, some software, and a desire to get good.....
