I never really try any other, but this one works great for me. the main reason I pick this one up is, if I ever upgrade to a 5D, it will fit on it and the canon 10-22 won't.

I'm in north west Broward and am in for any meet-up's. Some of the places I was thinking of have surely been mentioned; castle in coral gables, Biscayne bay, Butterfly world, Lion country Safari, south beach, downtown boca area, hard rock, Everglades park in florida City,Oh the list goes on.

I want to go to the meet up at the zoo as well, are kids allowed to come, mine will never forgive me if i go to the zoo without them. Will we all be in the chimping exhibit? :-)

You have many good ideas for locations. Bill Baggs Park (Key Biscayne) is a great area to shoot. I did not know that there was a castle in Coral Gables. Ill have to look that up.

I say bring the kids, its the zoo after all. I may be bringing my mother-in-law with me. She just loves her Canon P&S.

I look forward to meeting up with you guys tomorrow.
