How do you even pronounce that (so I don't look like an idiot in class Wednesday)? Yeah, I started a new quarter at college today, my first photo class. He springs on us that we must have a 35mm camera and film for the next class. :| So yeah, having already bought a few lenses for my 350D, I wanted one that I could use them with. The local camera shop my prof referred me to had only a 35mm Rebel with a broken LCD or a used Elan, in good condition. I got the Elan for $199 (was that a rip off?). The camera, rest of supplies for that class and my other class (color theory) totaled $535 There goes all the money I made over break! So yeah, basically, I want you guys to cheer me up about this. Right now I feel like I was forced to throw away $200 on a camera I don't really want. I plan on sticking to digital and upgrading to a 5D in a few years, so this seems like a step back for me. At least I can still buy EF lenses, right? Also, I have an EFS 10-22, and I know that won't work with this Elan, so what would be a good substitute to buy? I also have my (favorite lens) the EF 50mm 1.8 MK1, which will work, and a slow, soft, Canon EF 75-300mm 3.5. I'm sad!
