Remember when I grandly announced I was dropping out of the megapixel arms race? No? Well, good–because it was all lies. You see, that sorry stretch of blurry camera phone shots made nobody happy, and when my St. Ebay-worshipping friend Kay turned me on to the fact that an ancient, unused Canon lens I kept in the back of the closet would fit onto the body of a shiny new digital SLR, there was no holding me back. I’m still figuring out all the buttons and doohickeys, but it’s never too early for a little compare and contrast.
