Want. Want. Want!

I want the Canon EOS Rebel XTi SO BAD! I NEED a digital SLR.

I actually wanted a Nikon D40, but then I found out that all of my lenses from my film Canon Rebel wouldn't work on it. They will, however, work on the Canon DSLR. So tonight I dug out all of my camera equipment. I found my filter mount, along with a macro filter, UV filter, prism and polarizer. I found my hot flash, two cameras (old Yashica FX-103 and my Canon Rebel G) and three lenses (A Tamron 28-70, a Canon 28-80, and a Quantaray 70-300).

I also found a BOATLOAD of film, which I wonder if it is still any good. 200, 400 and 800. It's worth a try. Worse thing that could happen is they don't turn out. I got a roll of film developed about 10 or so years ago that was taken SPRING BREAK....1987!!! Only a few turned out, but that was really strange to see.

Anyway, enough rambling. If Scott does get a job, and we get our fence repaired, a new dishwasher and a new car for me, then maybe I'll get my camera.

See now that sucks for me. When I went to purchase my camera last year I was told by the guy ( at a reputable camera shop) that my previous Canon lenses would not cross over to the SLR camera, so I bought Nikon because we have lenses that work. I love my Nikon, and I love that I can drop 150 on a used lens and get what I want cheap. I would rather take my old 35mmPentax but there is nothing like shooting 800+ photos without stopping. :-) I have the D50 but I am upgrading this winter again to a higher pixel but I will stick with the Nikon again.

I made sure to ask when I was looking at the Nikon if any of my lenses would work with it. Since they have different mounts, they wouldn't. The Canon DSLRs (and this may be a recent thing) have the same Canon lens mount that the regular SLRs have.

However, you can BET MONEY that I'm taking all three of my lenses in with me when I buy one to make sure they fit before I buy it! I spent good money on that 70-300 lens!
