    Red face I say "SO!" (The nagging significant other issue)

    It is a perfect example of "SO" say so.

    A lot of photographers suffer from it ... and I really believe it holds back your true creativity. I mean, if you can dump your ready cash into your equipment, you'll have "the keys to the optical kingdom."

    Imagine the ability to just pony up and buy a SONY AF 300mm f/2.8 G SSM lens any old time you want to. Or better yet, when the time comes, get a Hasselblad H4D (<- click here)

    and the associated lensing to support it!

    That would be the anti-"SO" move of moves. When you need to get some attention ... I imagine this should do it.

    After you show your "SO" the price of this puppy (body only), everything else just kind of falls into perspective. Even if I SOLD all my SONY stuff (even at Elisha's awfully-inflated prices) ... I couldn't touch half of this.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Ouch, I don't think I would have opted for a 7D over a D90 and better glass, but welcome to Canon. Look out for that 85/1.8, the 10-22, 17-55, and any of the 70-200Ls. All are fabulous lenses. Dr4gon and I are pretty stoked about the 100L Macro IS.

    I love the wheel on the back, I guess you just get used to it. I was part of the reason I went with the Canon, so I was a bit surprised to hear you and Ryan complain about it. I also find it funny that so many people are going Canon instead of Nikon, but I did the same thing...

    I don't think I've mentioned that I recently picked up a later Minolta film camera (maybe 500i, can't remember), I've even been considering purchasing another 50/1.7. The camera is actually on loan to a friend right now. I miss that 50 and my beercan.

    Still not impressed with the ferris wheel but I'm getting used to it.

    BTW I sold my flash a couple of days ago.
    Ordered the RF-602 trigger and receiver and another YN-460 so I can do off-camera flash again!
