Ok, I have my equipment sorted out finally(I think). I finally ended up with a Gripped 50D(w/4 extra batteries), EF-S 17-85mm(will change to the 15-85 after I save up some more money), EF 70-200 F4 L, 50mm 1.8, 2- 420ex speedlites(got a good deal), Yongnuo wireless trigger, lens filter kits, Black Rapid R-7, and Canon 200 bag to carry all my toys. I think that is about all I am going to need for now to look like I might know what I'm doing(if you can't shoot for crap @ least look the part). My wife says I'm driven her bonkers over the last 6 months. I told her that is what I'm here for. I would like to thank everyone for their advice, insight and patience dealing with me over the last month. Well, I going out to pray and spray now. Thanks again!
