Finally going to be out of debit next Friday and decided I've been in debt so long it would feel weird not owing anyone money sooooo... I'm moving up to the 40D (I'm still considering an UW probably Canon... another 1K :( because some realtor's want me to start taking photo's for them on commission. Anyone know what I should ask for?). Still haven't decided on selling my XT, grip and Tammy... damn, this hobby is expensive! I've played with the 40D some, but am still a little worried that the XT probably could have done the jop fine... I just have grown tired of it being so tiny in my hands.

I think you mean debt. :)

Anyway, I think your XT will do just fine. Your 17-50 should also do fine as well unless your realtor sells properties like castles or mansions that are very wide.

Just enjoy being out of debt for a while :D Or perhaps just get into debt a little and upgrade one little step at a time.

buy your extra battery from 1800emart.com

i know i know, sounds shady, but it is 1800 or 1700 mah, and only like 15 bucks! CANNOT beat that! Mine has been going strong for a few years now and my brother has two or three of them also.

Stop it guys... I hate second guessing myself :p

In any case, money wise it won't matter in the long run since prices pretty much stay the same. If I save up for a few months vs just getting it now the only difference will be that I can use it now since my rate is 0% on new purchases until next November. Or so this is how I convinced myself... ;)

Oh on a side note... some financial advice for you: only spend what you have unless you know you can pay it off without interest. Don't put yourself in debt; especially now with the credit market where it is.

I'm using batt's from them right now in my XT and I really like them. However, it worries me that since they are differnent mah it may damage one of them or the camera (there is always a message to always use the same type of batt's in electronic devices). Or does one power the grip and the other the camera?

Oh, I neglected to mention that my medical reimbursement account (cafeteria plan) will be coming in December and if that isn't enough then my tax return will more than cover the cost in Feb. My wife just told me if I get this for my Christmas present then I'll have to match it between her and our daughter... ouchies... so much for debt free LOL...

Hmmm, my wife was the same. I bought a 1D Mark III last week so she took this as permission to go out and buy clothes, shoes, boots, bags....the list went on!!

As a jeweler I can think of a few nice shinny things which would buy you out of the dog house should you decide to go for the MkIII.
