Well, I did it. I made the leap! I bought a Nikon D60 from Ritz Camera. Don't know how long it will take to get here, but it is ordered. It will come with 2 lenses, both with vibration reduction (thank God): 18-55 and 55-200. I'm excited for it to arrive just as my school year is coming to an end.
Trust me, when it arrives, my blog will know. Can't wait to take pictures of the kids with it!
