The good old 300D and the 28-135 and jpg to boot. After several p&s cams the 300 was a handful of technology. I don't remember when I switched to raw. Great thread, thanks!

My first DSLR was a Pentax K200D w/kit. It was 750 freaking dollars!

Yeah, buying my first was a similarly painful experience. My only film SLR (a Ricoh KR-10 Super) was 150 new, so coughing up 650 for a 350D definitely hurt. It didn't get better either, when i realised after 2 months that the kit lens was rubbish and i needed to buy something better...

I think we all went through those growing pains. When I got my 10D in 2003 I soon discovered how poor the 28-105 from my Elan kit was. Sadly one of the first blurry pictures I took with it was of a lovely grove of trees up in Cuyamaca state park that was wiped out in a forest fire a few weeks later.

So the next year saw me buy 3 L lenses the 100-400, 17-40 (no EFs then), and 70-200 f4. You can see my priorities, the 100-400 came first! (Thanks Hawkman!) My wife thought I'd never stop buying lenses. She was right about the lenses, but even she didn't anticipate the camera bodies!
