:D So i have been wanting to buy a DSLR for awhile but I've been a bit short on money so my budget was tight, so tight i was beginning to wonder if i was every going to get one at all. There always seem to be new bills coming in that took away from the savings i had put away for it. So when one of the workers at my second! job said he was getting a 1100D with the 18-55mm kit lens for flexy renting a laptop from Harvey Norman and he didn't want it I quickly piped up and said i'll buy it off you.

He asked how much i'd pay for it, Jokingly i said two hundred and fifty dollars (they are selling for $700 here) and he said no worries :shock:. So now i have a brand new 1100D and Kit lens, while only being $250 out of pocket i feel so lucky. Anyway i'm loving my new DSLR and i can't wait put some pictures up on this forum just thought i'd share my story

What a great deal. 8)
Suppose the least you can do is take a few pics of your co-worker as an extra thank you, once you've mastered it. :wink:

Oh - the EOS 1100 is a nice little camera :)
The thing I'm missing on it is the possibility of using a battery grip.

Congratulations! Looking forward to seeing some of your shots!
