Canon Rebate

I am supposed to get back $620 in Canon rebates. And Canon has been very notorious in giving the rebates back to the customers. So, I have been very paranoid and sent in all the materials to canon. I mail everything on wednesday by priority mail (or first class) and have requested a delivery confirmation. Let's see how long it takes for the rebates to come.

5D owner!

I recently bought a Canon EOS 5D, I think I got it on Feb 22nd to be precise. I got a 75-300mm lens with it as well and that's not performing up to my expectations. But the camera is great, with 12.8Mpixels and all those fancy stuff. I hope to seriously take some great pictures and possibly go pro on the side. I have always wanted to be a pro photographer. The definition being one that generates money out of photography. If I can generate enough to buy more and more fancy equipment, that itself would be great. Let's see. There are too many things related to photography. The lens buying experience is one of them. Too many lenses, too many expensive and good ones out there. Too many flash options and too expensive again. I'm trying to get a good external flash, as the camera doesn't come with an internal one. The 580EX is supposed to be a great flash with lots of power. I hope to get it new or used. Then I would need the 50mm f/1.4 EF lens. This lens is really sharp and I love its performance! Lots to learn.
