changing from a g3 to the rebel xt
Oct 27, 2005

feb 2006 i will have had my g3 for 3 years. i would classify myself as a serious amateur

satisfied with it for the most part. slow and have missed shots from time to time- frustrating. took a trip to the southwest recently and experienced camera limitations- lcd screen blanked out from the sun, etc.
looked at the xt and really liked it.
question- tell me i'm not alone in this progression from g3 to slr.
wouldn't be too bad, but that g3 cost me 600 bucks.

as i type this i'm thinking of the nikon slr which i had to stop using because i needed to get autofocus: the nikon N6006 which broke down and pushed me towards digital and all the lens that i have with those 2 cameras.
reminds me of all the different fishing rods i have too.
so i guess this is part of the landscape of photography.
