    sigh.. as much as i love the feature set and performance of most Canon cameras, I just have to say.. they don’t make them pretty.

    Of course it’s not the gear’s job to be pretty but rather to help get pretty images.. I realize that.. but still.. It wouldn’t hurt, would it? I wish for beauty to go with my brains..
