Plus it's slow as molasses despite us having super-duper high speed innernets - anyone else experiencing blogger doldrums lately?
I'm still ages behind in reading everyone's blogs. Dunno why... I'm rarely online during the day and I'm busy editing photos and playing spider solitaire in the evenings, diving into facebook and researching cameras and all that nonsense...
OK, let me break this down a bit:
Editing the pics made me take a hard look at the main areas I need to address in getting a new camera that's adapted to my shooting style - current areas of contention that need fixing, what I can afford vs what I have that I can keep, etc.
It hit me like a ton of bricks while researching options: duh, the whole time it was staring at me in the face and I never saw it, LOL!
So I placed my order today... my new toy will be shipped this week - SO EXCITED!
I got me this:
I only needed to order the body since I have 3 expensive lenses that fit, plus external flash and everything - it would have been dumb (not to mention unaffordable) to move over to a new brand and start from scratch. This way I get my cake and eat it too before I'm too old to enjoy it, LOL!
This is a big upgrade from my D40x, which I'll have had for 5 years now come Christmas. Everything I've been bitching about (slow auto-focus, poor performance in low light, lens dust, no white balance, etc) should be fixed with this baby. It even records movies, woo!
I just need a couple more photo gigs and it will be paid off in no time.
Happy, happy me :)
Wishing you all a great Thursday!
