    Reminds me of the time i took the day off work to wait for a delivery from Parcel Force, the driver pulled up, and just stuck a Not At Home slip through the letterbox without knocking. So i ran out the door and asked him what the F*** he was doing. He got out his van and rummaged for my actual parcel...

    I also got banned from the Overclockers.co.uk forums for asking why their prices were higher and if i could price match. Over the phone they didnt seem to mind me asking that question!

    Woah, grabbed a 50d. time to retire the 1000d :)
    I think i got a cracking deal. 50d 106k shots, 3 batteries + charger, 8gb CF card, Strap and canon 35mm F2 prime all for £230 posted to my door. I can sell the lens for that much alone ~£200 on amazon plus i have a 1000d to sell so i can repair the body when/if it dies when i'm through with it. done through paypal sale so I can claim money back if it's a lemon.

    will be here tomorrow XD can't wait!

    Yes sir, I believe you have a good deal there, if the 35mm doesn't come with major problems (big scratch etc).

    I bought it for the lens really :) The seller assured me it's clean. :laugh:
    I got a free camera body :) I might sell my camera and the new lens and get the shutter changed. or sell my body and keep it for a little until I have money for a new body... this'll last me another 3-4000 shots which is enough for me :)

    Sorry, I have Nikon hardware here (built around D5100). Unless its super cheap I will not bite, especially the need for a lens.

    Nice, very much like the 600D i wanted that but i like the feel of the more professional cameras. My friend has that one, i must say it's really small ;)

    Will take some snaps of the beast tomorrow :laugh:

    oh yeah 50d Came today, looks a bit battered up as expected, minor corner damage and grip was peeling on one side. Cleaned up with alcohol and some glue and it looks as good as new. Burst shooting is amazing on this fucker... I'm loving it. That 35mm lens is clear, think it was a great deal. Booked a skiing holiday to use this bad boy :)

    had 3 original canon batteries too! only issue is the charger has a US plug

    I don't see why backlit though, other than aesthetics (sure you should know your keyboard well enough not to even see them by now?)

    My PC is in my front room, I don't like bright lights at night time, I have used a backlit keyboard for years and don't intend to change now, nothing to do with aesthetics as it happens, this is one of my major pre-requisites when buying a keyboard, Lycosa has been old faithful for 2 years and before that Saitek Eclipse :cool:
