I thought about it for a year. I was drawn to it right away. Everything sounded so good, everything I read made it sound like what I needed. It was hard to make the commitment, but finally…I did. I ordered a new lens on Wednesday, and picked it up tonight. I think it is love.

I’m not sure it is going to be an easy love. It is heavy, I have to get used to things, but the real test won’t come until tomorrow anyway, when I have a day at Poplar Spring to see what I think of it. If I find myself switching to my old lens, this sucker is going back.

With horribly low amounts of ambient light (I couldn’t pick up my new love until 8pm!) I took some crappy shots, and came up with this fun, if technically disasterous, pic of my other love.
