    Canon Kit finally purchased!

    Hi Folks

    Just a thank you to the people on AP,for help in information on items I have been looking at purchasing over the last few months.Well I finally got the kit I asked about.A canon 50D and a 17-55 F 2.8 IS lens I have enclosed a couple of photos,and also a few basic test photos from our garden of a yellow butterfly (yellow migrant),I am happy with the gear.

    I had thought about a 7D,but I prefer to spend money on lenses (preferably L) so decided to save money, for them.

    the 17-55 is really nice,thanks again for everyone's help.

    regards FB

    Woohoo Congrats on the new gear!!! I just got a new DSLR last night and can't wait to go birding.

    Nice shot's. Were they at f/2.8? DOF looks shallow!

    Congrats, you will get some greats images with that kit out. Look forward to what you can get birding now. I have been tempted to buy the 7d too, but I am still buying my lens at the moment.

    I got my bag by the way - loweprow 400w - does the job.
