I just 'won' this camera on ebay. I am so excited. I have a digital camera that takes okay photos....but I want really great pics. We won't live here forever and would like to take some beautiful photos of the country home with us. The first place I would like to go is to France and Belgium again to get some photos of rememberance. So.....I am definately not going to America in November now.....I know this camera is a thing that is going to keep costing with new lens' etc...aaahhh a whole new world to discover!!!! Thanks Donna for your expertise!!!!
