Yeah, I'm a few generations behind, but MAN this thing is fast!
I'm amazed at how quickly the prices are falling for dSLRs on the secondary market. With the 50D out now & the 60D about 6 months away, people are upgrading like mad. I'm sure as heck not going to drop $1200 for a 50D or $800 for a 40D, but $400 for a 30D seemed like a pretty reasonable deal for a camera with 90% of the same features.
I had been taking pics of my daughter's sporting events (softball & diving) and found that the XT just couldn't keep up. So I peeked on ebay just for kicks & couldn't believe that the 30D was so cheap. 5 frames per second, baby!
If only the price of the faster lenses fell as quickly...
