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!

Cool deal, chicks! Have fun with the new tool. And golly, with all those events coming up, you'll have a lot to use that tool on!

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.

    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
    • Garretson Food Center..... $1.69/ pound You are exactly right.... And if you vacuum seal it with some of the drippings, this winter it will taste like it was fresh off the smoker!
    • The truth comes out!
