[Photography] New Lens, and Resolution

I just received a really wonderful new lens as a gift (two, really, but one is in a class by itself), and so this weekend, I made a point of getting out and taking photos again.

I didn't focus on the technical aspects; a few photos have too much noise, and I'll clean them up later. I just focused on getting out and shooting photos, enjoying myself. I shot in my neighborhood, I shot along the canal, and I shot in Discovery Park tonight with my friend Shay. I've tossed up a few of my favorites from the weekend onto my Flickr stream.

Photography, like horses, is one of the things that helps keep me sane and relaxed. And I've realized with some family stress going on, I need that right now. So Shay and I are going to try and make a pact to go do photography together at least one weekend out of a month.

I do enjoy low-light shots, but I also want the camera primarily for travel -- which means having a lighter body and built-in flash is probably more advantageous. I think you've sold me on the XTi (you certainly get some nice shots with it). It'll be a shame to retire my EOS 33, but I fear the days of 35mm film are passing.

Thanks for the info!
I dunno about that; I still shoot with a Rebel K2 fairly regularly, at least for black and white stuff. 35mm may be passing as a general-use thing, but I still find I do not like digital black-and-white as much as what I can get off of Kodak TMax monochrome film.

But the K2 is also a no-brainer; it shares accessories with the XTi (or 40D); flash works on both, lenses work on both, etc. So I don't need anything special other than the film body for the times I actually want to do film.
