Since no one has bought me my dream camera yet (sigh) I'm willing to settle for a more affordable body. The Canon 40D is on sale at Costco right now for $999.00 and that is one STEAL OF A DEAL! Trust me.... go check it out! And then round up 100 of your closest friends and you can each pitch in 10 bucks to get it for me! I'll do all your pictures for free (for the rest of your life) if you do!
