My wife got rewarded for her hard work this year and she graciously (more like... miraculously) OK'ed the purchase of a new camera body. I've been using the Canon Rebel series (300d, 350d, 400d) ever since I picked up this expensive hobby, but always wanted to make the jump to the Canon xxd series. I own decent glass (a few Tammies and a few Canon primes), a bunch of speedlights, and some strobist lighting gear. Next on my wishlist are the new PWs, a set of ABs, and the 70-200 2.8 IS L. So, should I do my part in keeping America debt ridden and enjoy the upgrade to the better body (most probably 50d), or should I be a good boy and use the money to pay our overwhelming debts. Here's one of my kittah pics to add fuel to the fire. ibbadjpegcompression I'll go with what you guys decide (except for option 3) so take my polellel.
