    :devil: Well I strolled into the London Camera Exchange today and then I strolled out again...........................with a bag of goodies in my hand. The nice man was up for the old price match banter and so I came away with a 350d, 1gb CF, soft case and a f 4-5.6 EFS 17-85mm IS USM lens :devil: :devil: :devil:

    I have really caught the photography bug, can't believe I did it......especially as I had just bought a Panasonic FZ20 with 1gb sd and spare battery plus case!!!! :eek: :eek: :eek: The Panny takes great pics and I learned to use it to its full potential, that's what gave me the upgrade bug :D

    So all I need to do now is flog my as new Panny on ebay and get the wife a compact digital as she say's she is not going any where near the Cannon :cool: That's fine by me as she can be a little clumsy :rolleyes:

    I expect I'll be back to the LCE to buy a zoom in a few weeks (paid for by the sale of the Panny) :smashin: :smashin: :smashin:

    :hiya: At the moment I am in a special place called 'random snapping mode'....as my teeny weeny brain works through the fundamentals of my 350d. Despite said brain running at capacity it has still managed to firmly fix a big grin on slightly ugly face :thumbsup:

    Once I have worked it all out I shall enter and win every photocomp from here to Tasmania......I mean...how can I possibly lose :rolleyes:

    Welcome to the 350D club. I think you've made a good choice, but then I would say that I've got one. :D If you have the funds try it with a battery grip (BG-E3), it give a better feel to the camera as well as other advantages.

    Thanks ASH1,

    I will get rid of my panny before I splash out on any more extras....I got the camera with a £400 lens and I'm busy experimenting....should keep me occupied until more funds are gathered together! :thumbsup:

    I do not find the size of camera uncomfortable either, small hands I guess :rolleyes:
