    I would think the lens itself would say MACRO on it ?

    etc

    focal lengths and all that .. means nothing to me either... I'm of a press buttons.. press more buttons.. take lots of shots.. check.. press buttons.. check.. take more shots.. and eventually work out what seems to take the best shots for the given situations... but I know MACRO is the one for close ups and I'm pretty sure on a DSLR camera its a specific lens that does macro not like a bridge or compact camera where its a setting...

    ps you can get some great/fantastic shots with DSLRs but you need to have them set up and ready... I had a go with my mates at a party and I took some close ups of people wandering around ok, then tried to take a picture of everyone on the dance floor (something that would just pull back the zoom on my bridge camera..) I was playing about with settings and such.. my mate says pass it here... switches it off.. changes to the wide angle lens and passes it back.... then I couldn't get the close up shots, so had to put the other back... and then wanted to take pictures of the buffet food and had to change to the macro lens.... you get better shots but you miss a lot of the "spur of the moment stuff"...

    which is why I decided not to buy a DSLR as my photography is unlikely to be used for anything professional and I like take random shots, live as it comes shots, food, landscapes etc...

    If I had the money (and skill) I'd have both

    Mickey, that is FANTASTIC!!! I'm beyond jealous... Been spending half my days looking at DSLR's in the last week or so, and thought I had it down to a Canon. Now I'm really motivated!!!

    Congrats on nabbing that wonderful hubby! What a guy!

    Too coincidental to be true. I hadn't seen an EOS 600D and found out it's a T3i but made for the European market. That's the exact camera that's been making me drool all week!!!

    It must be a sign... Have to tell the DH... icon_wink.gif

    Thanks Steve for your honesty and insightfulness too!
    I LOVE my new DSLR even though don't know what to do!
    Let's not call her Carrie, thinking she might be possessed lol
    But I point, she zooms, I click and then SHE does her best! lol

    Am sure once I get this MAJOR project out of the way, DH and I will be taking the EOS tutorial on line which according to Canon is simple and easy to do icon_smile.gif

    WHOO HOO Thank you

    Hope you have a great day too!
