Christmas in July...

I have a new little toy for our trip to Colorado this summer. I really did not intend to get another camera. I wanted a bit better zoom for two reasons. First, my family hates their pictures taken and I thought if I had more zoom I could sneak pictures in more often. Second, we are going camping/jeeping in Colorado and I wanted some more zoom for the fabulous scenery we will be seeing. I started out "trying" to be frugal and thought I would go on Ebay and find me the Tele-converter lens for my Canon G-2 camera. It is sort of an older camera and I figured that I could find a great deal. After doing some research I discovered that I needed the lens adapter as well as the converter and it was going to cost around $100. I was just about to place a bid when Randy wandered in to see what I was up to. After some discussion we were curious as to what a new camera with a better zoom would cost. That led us to researching Canon review sites...Ebay...Amazon... I won't bore you with all the nitty gritty of our research but, three hours later I was buying...
