I've just ordered the Canon EOS 20D and the EF 17-40mm f/4L USM lens (it took me forever to decide on the lens after it took me forever to decide on the body). While the lens was well outside my price range (and I've now spent double what I initially planned for my first DSLR), I knew that I would get it eventually and so I went ahead and sprung for it now. I don't think this will come as a shock to most of my friends — if there is something I want I usually figure out a way to make it happen. Granted, that way might mean that I can't eat for a month, but at least I'll be able to get some great shots of my emaciated body.
It should be here by Friday, and assuming I haven't withered away by then I'd like to have some shots up by the weekend.
