After all the shooting with compact Canon G2, IXUS 400, then IXUS 40, I finally took the plunge to go into DSLR which are now more affordable. Was tempted to get the 400D at first but finally decided to go for Canon 30D. This is what I've bought (at Harvey Norman) today:
1. Canon 30D kit (with EFS 18-55mm)
2. Canon EF 55 - 200mm f/4.5 - 5.6 II USM
Bundle with Sandisk 1 GB ULtra II CF, Kingston 2 GB CF, Dry box, tripod, LCD protector, UV Filter, Lens Workbook from Canon.
Purchased extra 4 year warranty for $350 (total 5 years). Total damage near to $3K.
Any site to share how to use this beauty to its fullest?
