Brandon - check with me if you go out to buy one. Call me crazy but I may have mine (excellent shape with all boxes, etc) up for sale soon. I have been mainly using it with a 1.4 and 1.8 TC and recently bought a Nikon 80-400 VR that covers the same + range with no TC's. If it works out I may not keep my best lens, the 70-200 VR.

So far I have not decided as I'm still testing the 80-400. It is much slower to focus than the 70-200 (no AFS) but may be competitive at the long end when I compare sharpness becasue of the 1.7 TC issue on the 70-200. In any case if the 80-400 works out on the long end (although it will never be as fine a lens at the 70-200 range) and although it would hurt to see it go, I'm not sure I want to leave that much money tied up in a lens that I would then seldom use.

We'll see.

My boyfriend gave me a D40X. I think I will keep him. I have only ever had a little cheap digital camera, so this one is going to take a little time to get use to. But I am looking forward to getting back into taking photos.

I got a Bath and Body Works gift set from my sister (Japanese Cherry Blossom...my favorite), a silver cross necklace, an ornament, a dreamcatcher, and some pretty earrings from my kids, a blanket, scarf, and huge gift set of Vanilla and Cream body products from my sons' Sunday school teacher, a beautiful ring and earring set from my mother-in-law, a set of comfy-cozy PJ's from my mom, some "trash" made by my oldest niece (the kind with chex mix and melted almond bark...yum!), a stress ball and two packages of beautiful scrapbook paper from my niece-in-law, and a neck pillow from one of my other nieces.

My most favorite thing I "got" for Christmas, however, was being with my three boys at my sister's house with her, her husband, their three kids, their eight grandkids, and everyone being happy and together. The eleven children had the living room looking like a gift-wrapped tornado had come through, but that was so much fun we didn't care. I'll have to post some pictures...it was a crazy good time!

I'm jealous. :-/
On the other hand, the last thing I need in my life is more entertainment!

I got many things but the ones I asked for and got were...camera hand strap and a right angle viewfinder. I really wanted that view finder because I am getting old and laying on the ground to see through the finder is killing my knees. (and requesting the new E3 just wasn't an option lol) My wife couldn't understand why I wanted a viewfinder that you have to look down through lol, she just doesn't get it...but I did so all's good.

(p.s. oh and the wife is mad cause when she ordered the viewfinder from B&H it was $130 and is now $115...oops)
