Holy freaking camera, Batman!
Dear Canon 20D,
I love you. You know that. We have been through a lot together. You survived our move, my 365 project, and a baby, and a fledgeling portrait business. I do not know the exact count, but I think I could safely say you have loyally served me with thousands upon thousands (upon thousands) of photos in the 3+ years we've spent together. You did a wonderful job, you really did. You taught me so much as a photographer, for that, I am truly grateful.
Before you made your way to me (via eBay) you were owned for years by one, possibly two, other people. A digital camera surviving that long with that kind of use is pretty much unheard of. So instead of feeling like I am kicking you out in the cold, please think of it this as a form of retirement. You will still be here with us, your 8 megapixels faithfully housed in your comfy bag, ready to help out if called upon.
Hopefully, you will learn to love the newest member of the family, Ms. 21 megapixel Canon 5D Mk ii. She will be doing the heavy lifting from now on, but just know, there will always be a special place in my heart reserved only for you, 20D.

This is how you know she's had enough...
