Yes. I bought a Digital SLR camera while on my Long Trip In Asia. I like it very much.


My Stuff


Lenses and Filters

  • EF-S 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 (kit lens)
    • Canon 58mm Protect
    • Not a bad lens. This is the kit lens that comes with the Digital Rebel XT. It's moderately sharp through the entire range. f/3.5 at 18mm helps some. It doesn't feel too sturdy though; when zooming from 18mm to 24mm you hear the sound of something grinding against something else, which doesn't lend much confidence to the build quality.

  • EF-S 17-85 IS USM f/4.0-5.6
    • EW-73B Lens Hood
    • Praktica 67mm UV-Protection
    • This is a nice, all-round walk-around lens. It has its limitations -- a bit of CA (when shooting up into trees), softness at 85mm, a bit slow at f/4.0. If you're ok with this, you'll get a great lens: 3-stop IS, and a zoom from 17 to 85 (28 to 135 35mm equivalent).

  • EF 50mm f/1.8 II

  • EF 35mm f/2
    • EW-65II Lens Hood
    • 52mm Hoya SMC UV filter
    • I love this lens. Light, pin-sharp and fast. Too bad it's not USM.

  • EF 70-200 f/4L IS
    • ET-74 Lens Hood
    • 67mm B+W UV filter
    • I love this lens even more. Pin-sharp, 4-stop IS. So much fun. Not too heavy, either.
    • Now that I've gone L, I can't look back!

E-TTL Flash


  • 5 x Sandisk Ultra2 2GB CF
  • Lexar Professional 1GB CF
  • Sandisk 512 MB

Camera Bags

  • Canon gadget bag
  • Lowepro Off-Trail 1, black
  • Lowepro Slingshot 100 AW
  • Crumpler Seven Million Dollar Home


  • Manfrotto 714B
    • Small. Light. Suits me just fine.


  • Canon RC1 remote control

Total spent on camera to-date: $5430. Boy, This Is Really Expensive!

  • EF 50mm f/1.8
    • Great lens, but I don't use this enough to justify having it.
