My new toy

After going through Sony, Nikon, and Canon..... A550, D90, 50D; I finally made my choice.

450D, yes.. the almost obsolete camera.

My initial choice the D90 with the 18-105 kit lens for which I got a very good deal.

How I ended up with a Canon was a long story, but it is what i have in my hands now.

So my latest toy is a 450D mated with a Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX Macro lens.

Have only fiddled with it for a few hours, but so far so good.
Since it doesn't have any IS or vibration control, I'll hv to start training my hands to be more stable.

Here's a sample shot... what do you think??
