new lens = new banner

June 26, 2007

yep … i know its been ages (like 6 months) since i posted. its been a tough year & i retreated into my shell – but i’ve missed blogging & making connections. so … i’m back … again!

this photo of the moon:


with captured with my new lens – the amazing 50-500mm sigma (affectionately known as the "bigma"). the reach on this baby is awesome – like looking thru a telescope!  i love the fact that its 200mm longer than most zooms & a subtle black. i love the fact that one lens covers such a wide range. although its quite heavy, it fits perfectly on the 20D (with a battery pack). the 50mm lens will always be my favourite for low-light situations, but this one (esp. with a monopod) will be the star outdoors. i can’t wait to try it out on our next trip to the beach!
