I got just the body, because I already have a kit lens and I don’t need another one of those laying around. I bought it on Amazon.com and saved myself about $80 on the camera price! PLUS - free two day shipping with Amazon Prime. </swoon>

UPS says my packages will be here Tuesday.

I’m finally breaking down and purchasing a brand new camera, a Canon T3i, soon. Soon, as in within the next week or so. I’m beyond excited, and I can’t stop having dreams about it’s sexy body and the feeling of it’s plastic and leatherette under my finger tips. I can’t wait to feel the weight of it around my neck with it’s wide obnoxious strap, that will probably cut into my shoulder so I’ll end up getting rid of it. But still… I can’t wait.
You could totally help my buy it by contributing to the ‘Cara finally gets a new camera’ fund…via paypal… using corrinajo[at]gmail[dot]com as the recipient. You know, in case you wanted to help a girl out.
