Well, I went and did it; ordered a 20D to replace my aging D60. All my determination to control Christmas spending just melted away. It started innocently enough. I was following Planesh00ter’s thread about the $1329 20D from buydig.com and looked at the site to check it out. The price now was $1309 with free ground shipping!!! Somehow, I’m not quite sure how, the order page appeared, and then, for no reason, my credit card # flew onto the screen, and then, against my will and better judgment, my mouse clicked “SUBMIT ORDER”. I got my tracking number last night.
Not content with that breakdown in fiscal control, my computer went to the B&H site and ordered a BG-E2 grip and Sigma ETTL II compatible flash. I wanted to order the talent plug-in, but could not get a price or a ship date.
I guess I’ll download the latest ACR plug-in and then repeatedly click the FEDEX and UPS tracking sites for the next few days.
Maybe I’ll run for Congress. I’ve gotten really good at spending my money; that would give me the chance to spend yours too.
