Brand New Camera...

and the old one on eBay. :) We've just listed our Canon EOS 5D and a Canon 50mm f/2.5 macro lens.

We had planned to purchase a new refrigerator this morning. But I looked at Jay and said, "why don't we go get a Canon 5D Mark II instead." He didn't take much convincing. :) We spent the morning running tests and taking the camera for a test drive in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. We also cleaned up the old 5D and the macro lens to prepare them for sale. And while I was at it, I cleaned my EOS 50D and all our lenses. They needed a little bit of attention after our Death Valley trip. (The tripods still need some work - but we'll have to get to that another day.)

I've been wanting to purchase the Canon 100mm macro lens for a while now - so once my little 50mm macro is sold, that's our next purchase. And maybe we'll get a new refrigerator in a few years. Or not...

Congrats, I thought it was cold enough to just leave the food outside anyways. I hear the Canon 100-400 is nice too. =)

;) Yep - it wouldn't work for you poor Florida residents... but up here in Cleveland, the great outdoors make a great refrigerator... if you don't mind the constant freeze/thaw cycles. :)

That 100-400mm DOES look nice... HEY! Stop tempting me!
