So I've finally decided to give a present for myself (yay me) and get a sparkling new camera. This thread will be a dump of (very random) pics and notes as I learn the inns and outs of the camera.
Anyway, my initial impressions of 400D and kit/50mm 1.8 lens are:
1) kit lens is wiiiiiiide (compared to an ordinary P&S)
2) viewfinder is kinda dim (ok the 50mm lens)
3) ISO 1600 is awesome
4) I'll never get bored of the out-of-focus blur at wide apertures (well maybe next year)
5) The cheap 50mm lens can pick up the cobwebs on the chandelier quite well.
