I have read the forums and watched the for sales for months.

I originally was aiming for a 20D. The posts made me believe I should get a 30D. But the more I read I was sure the 40D--WAS FOR ME!

Up early check the latest "For Sale", is today the day? Yesterday was, and not far from home. Unfortunately the economic situation forced a lady to liquidate. Even my wife agreed it was a deal.

1900 clicks with the full package except the strap she gave her sister.

I will ask questions galore because this is a step from an Olympic P&S to the 40D.

Now I really feel like a member of the forum!
