I have been drooling over this camera for the last six months. I have gone to the store to hold it and make sure I was still in love with it several times during those months. Today, finally, I was able to walk out of the store with it. I was going to wait until Christmas (as some of it will be from my parents) but I'm heading out to Arizona next week and wanted to be able to have the new camera. I haven't really played with it yet, but I can tell its true love. Can't wait to spend some serious bonding time with it!
