I welcomed it into my loving arms :biggrin: Long story short, I received some money that was owed to me. Now I am trying to decided what to buy with it. First things first though. I have a student loan that payoff is $3211 at 7%. Obviously the smart choice would be to pay that off. Paying that off would leave me $1189. Add 600 for the gov't sending out money...I am at $1789 for some purchases. I am happy with my current lenses. Nik 50 1.4, Nik 18-55 kit, Tam 28-75 so I don't think I need any lenses right now. I have been thinking the D300. The money would be right in that range. OR.... I was thinking keeping working the best I can with the D50 I have and using the money to upgrade my Macbook pro. I was thinking either more memory (but I think my macbook pro is limited to 2GB) and a external monitor or a imac 24in and upgrade the memory on that when I get it. Hmmmmmm. Any thoughts?
