Back in the Saddle again
Well here we are again and I have not written anything for over a month now. Oops. A couple of weeks ago someone has taken my work laptop and my camera equipment. Waaaa. You never know how much shit you have until you try to replace it. I lost have of the cost of everything for under my insurance there is an $1000 deductable. So I cant claim the full amount. But at least I get half of it. I was already willing to spend some cash on a new body but was debating which one. When my old stuff was taken I was open for any manufacture for the only thing that held me back before is that I had 5 Canon lens and it would be stupid to get another system and re-buy the lenses. But since I lost everything I have the option of which one to look at. I looked really hard at Nikon but in the end I still think for the price that they are higher and are equal to the same systems from Canon. So I decided to get back with Canon. Now with the Canon do I splurge and get the 7D or the new baby brother T2I. After weeks of deciding I went with the baby brother T2I. It was half the price and since I still had to buy lenses I used the difference to get some lenses instead. I had a great deal from Adorama cameras where I got the T2I with the 18-55mm IS and the 55-250mm IS lens for around $950. buying the package I saved around $200. I looked at getting the body by itself for $799 but for the price of the special and an extra $150 I have two good lens. One of the lenses I was looking at if I bought the body itself is around $600-$700 so that would put me back up to $1300-$1400 range. With the package I still saved around $400-$500 with ok lenses to start off with and don’t have to worry of getting top lenses right away. I am expecting the new stuff sometime this week and I plan on reviewing it for the fun of it. Ill post the review when I can. With the last couple of weeks for school. I have some test and labs to do first.
