My new lens!

Postby SlainteMhath » Sat Dec 20, 2008 8:23 pm

DH bought me a 18-200 f/3.5 VR for Christmas! I had been wanting to consolidate my kit lens and 55-200VR so I don't have to switch out my lenses as much. Now the old ones are for sale to put toward another new lens. :wink:

My mom is getting a 90mm 2.8 for Christmas that she is going to "share" with me. So I'll have another awesome portrait lens to play around with. :D

Cool mom, huh? She will likely be getting more lenses that I can share!

My brother and SIL both majored in photography and have a plethora of camera supplies/lenses to share.... BUT, my brother drives me crazy with his arrogance sometimes, so I hesistate borrowing lenses from them.

Oh yeah! I thought maybe it was similar, but didn't realize it was the same lens! LOL It took me a while to decide which one I wanted, but I thought it would be a good idea to consolidate the old lenses before I got any new ones!!
