So, some of you know, that I have been really wanting this camera lens for quite awhile, and my husband, in an unusual moment of sweetness, bought it for me for my birthday! He picked it up last night and I am in love! I'm going to nickname her, "the beast" because it is HUGE and HEAVY!! LOL! what would an sane person want with a monster like this, some of you may wonder? Well, these lenses are also called "fast glass" and they are made specifically for capturing moving objects in low light! YES! Perfect for football and basketball! This lens had over 600 5star ratings on bhphotovideo.com and many people use it for wildlife & potraits as well as sports. so anyways, enough gushing! Here it is on my camera (canon 7D) side view
And here they sit side by side, just to put it all into perspective, my old rebel xti on the left with the kit lens. I should have taken a side view of this, too.
Well, there you have it! I hope to catch some amazing action shots with this baby! Randy has a basketball tournament Easter weekend, so I will get to test it out! I may need to start lifting some weights in the meantime! LOL!
I am a WAHM of 2 fantastic and very active boys, Randy 17, and Brandon 11. I have been married to my husband, Clinton, for 19 years.
I think I have been crafting forever it seems. I really can't remember a time in my life that I wasn't doing something crafty! I started rubber stamping more than 15 years ago, it was my passion for a very long time. I started scrapping about 10 years ago, I think. In 2006 , I received a cricut for our anniversary from Clinton, I have hardly touched my stamps since! I upgraded to the expression in May of '07, what a great machine!
Besides scrapping, I also enjoy making little mini albums and such for gifts.
