I’m super excited. Do you want to know why? ‘Cause I’m gonna tell you, whether you want to know or not.
One of the things I’m working on with this blog (besides wading through 60+ cookbooks trying to determine which I should keep and which I should toss – and so far the toss pile is oh, so much smaller than the keep pile) is my photography skills. I took a photography class when I was in college (many, many years ago), and I truly enjoy taking pictures. I even bought a digital SLR this year, one that I could use with the lenses I had from my film SLR days.
What I’ve come to realize, though, is that the lenses I had, plus the lens the camera came with? not the best. Probably you could tell that from the quality of the photos on this site (I’m totally blaming it on the lenses, not my mad skillz).
Anyway, I was pointed to a lovely site yesterday that had a whole post about lenses, and specifically, this lens. And guess what? No, really guess! Alright, here goes….
I BOUGHT IT! I really did. And I’m sooooo excited for it to get here. Of course, it probably won’t arrive until next week since I opted for the FREE shipping, but still.
Did I mention I’m excited? ‘Cause I am.
Anyway, if you have minute, check out the customer images and the reviews. For the price, this is supposed to be an excellent little lens with great depth of field yielding really sharp photos. I can’t wait to test it on my own subjects.
