Pulled the trigger

5 posts in this topic

Thanks to all who chimed in when I was asking about different lenses. I pulled the trigger and ordered a Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.5-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom from Canoga. It is backordered, but should get sent out Monday or Tuesday.

This lens is one that fit the budget most comfortably. That will leave a little extra for my youngest daughter's 14th birthday, Father's Day, and hubby's 40th - all this month. smile

Again, thanks for all the input!

Congrats on the new toy. I'll be anxious to see what kind of shots you get with it. BTW, how did things go for you at the piano recital a few weeks ago?

I forgot to mention the reason hubby gave the green light. He is testing for his master's degree (4th degree) black belt in Tae Kwon Do at the end of June. The spectators are encouraged to take pictures. I usually am a nervous wreck watching him test, so this will be a good diversion. smirk

Woo Hoo! I just received notification that my new lens was shipped today. Now it will be like anticipating Christmas until it gets here! grin

X-tackleman- the piano recital went ok. The lighting was horrible, though. Black curtain within a foot of a black grand piano, students with blonde hair wearing black shirts, and one with black hair and a white shirt. I am not nearly experienced enough to know how to change settings on the fly. I'll post a couple in a new thread.

    • I have seen 3 different flocks of Swan's in the past week. I have also seen small flocks of little birds that look to be migrating.
    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.
    • Trump is the enemy of the truth ! 
    •   Shouldn't be hard to come up with a way to fill a 1/4 inch gap, it seems to me.   Rip some strips of something, maybe even that synthetic decking, trex or something.    Then you could have the vinyl
    •   *marks "leech brings up someone's location as evidence their opinions are not relevant" on sillytown bingo card*   I'm one "big dave says you just don't understand freedom" away from a BINGO!
    •     ........if you are member of the LIVs. My 2nd graders think I am really smart at math as well. 
    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.

    •   No and no, I read it closely, but down here I shoot first then ask questions.                          
    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
