It was Friday... Adam was out of town... and I could no longer hold myself back... see Amazon had it with $100 instant rebate... and I'm a prime member (so I get free two day shipping...) .. and well... it became irresistible...
Joining my vast collection of lenses, please help me welcome the newest member of my family.
Isn't he gorgeous?
In case you need more than just a picture to recognize this beauty, it's the Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS Lens (Yes, I already have the f4.... but come on.. this one is sooooo much better!) This is my first IS (Image Stabilization) Lens and I cannot believe it! Check out this picture I just (at 10:15 at night) took of Mr. Meowmers.
No flash, no tripod. Just me and my new lens... at 10:15 at night!!! Can you believe it??
With the camera in Aperture Priority mode I had an F-Stop of f/2.8, a shutter speed of .4 sec (seriously - hand-held!!), ISO of 400, and a focal length of 153mm. I cannot believe I caught this kind of picture with that shutter speed... Wow! I'm so in love :)
On a completely different note, you know what I don't love? 1 ply toilet paper. Adam and I were at Sam's Club the other day and I was in need of toilet paper. Well what do you know, as soon as we walk in there's a big display of toilet paper on sale. Awesome. In the cart it went. Not until I got home and had the pleasure of using it, did I realize what I bought... Good thing I have 35 rolls of it!!!!
