Default Santa came early = better boat pictures!

I have pushed my 8mb Nikon, and it's general purpose lens, past it's limit. For quite some time I have been contemplating an upgrade.

I have done all my research, and watched the prices. I decided to purchase the best 'non full frame' camera, available today. This decision yields two choices, Canon 7D and Nikon D300S. After studying each carefully, and reading virtually every review and comparison, I selected the Canon 7d.

Initial purchase
Canon 7d body
Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
Canon 72MM UV Filter
Canon EW-78D shade
ScanDisc Extreme 8gb 60MB/sec UDMA card

Wow, that is an amazing picture, Frank. I have never had much success shooting fireworks but you obviously have. Congrats, Bob.

Thank you Bob. Missed you all, last weekend, looking forward to Jan 29, but again the tide here is extremly low that morning. I am already thinking about a work around.
