I've been out of the SLR arena for many years. Well, I'm excited and wanted to share with someone. I've been wanting a Canon XTI for probably 2 years, then the 40D came out and I've been stalking it since it's release. I finally pulled the trigger. Swung a pretty sweet deal on it too.

I'm really stoked to be able to take some decent photos again. It's so frustrating using consumer point-and-shoots. missing your favorite shot because of shutter lag or finding that the flash completely bleached the photo.
I hear the lens is good, but not top notch. It's a 28-135mm f3.5-5.6 with Image Stabilizing. However, more than sufficient to get me rolling.
