    Just got my Canon 50d wahoo

    Ready at last i just got my Canon 50d from Harvey Norman great price but when i picked it up today they said they could not give me the box as it comes in a kit form with a lens as i purchased body only so they gave me a Canon Crumpler priced at $99 and a Lonely Planet guide to Holiday Photography for the inconvenience .
    Unfortunately my Sigma 18-50 lens was not in (purchased from Teds) but my Macro Canon 100mm was so im all set now just waiting for my battery to charge then im up and ready just thought i would share my excitement .
    All i need now is Macro tips and from what ive seen this site has it all great stuff....

    Hey Britinozz - me too. I just picked up my 50D this morning also. Brisbane is almost out of stock only a handful around if you can find them. Hope you enjoy your new camera - my mate has one and it is superb, I can't wait to bolt on a lens and give it a run.
    Great buy - enjoy.
    Please be honest with your Critique of my images. I may not always agree, but I will not be offended - CC assists my learning and is always appreciated

    Congrats on great camera, you are in a win win situation, a Canon Crumpler is more useful than a original empty box collecting dust in the garage.
