    I was helping a friend move last night and as I was hanging out next to the truck, I happened to see some guy standing outside the cafe across the street with a camera. I walked over and said hi and asked what he was shooting with...it happened to be an XT.

    I wen back across the street to my truck and got my 70-200 2.8 IS out of my camera bag and let him shoot with it for a little while.

    I are a good sumaritun. :mrgreen:

    EEK! Are you crazy? I would never trust another photog with my equipment. I know how clumsy I am, what if he would've dropped it... ouch.

    But yes, it was nice of you and I am SURE it made his day!

    Insurance.

    Plus I knew the people he was talking to at the cafe. He's apparently friends with a girl I know that works there. It's a small college town and even if he would have ran off with it, he would have paid for it in the long run.

    I mean, there's not too many people that go by the name of Turtle.

    Good man. I don't know why this seems like such a dirty word on this forum.

    Thats exactly how I ended up with mine. I already had the 100-400L and was hemming and hawing over getting the 70-200 f2.8 L When my buddy stopped by to run his dog on our land I saw his in his truck and he said try it. I put it on my 40D shot about 50 pics of his dog running and when he left later I went right online to B&H and bought mine:lol:.

    Digging up the cash for the 400 f/2.8 L right now;).

    That big aperture is like night and day( literally) for the type of photography I do.

    I am in the process of switching out all my glass for Canon L series large aperture glass.

    Good for you for sharing! I had a complete stranger offer to let me use one of his lenses, when he overheard me saying I couldn't fit the whole market square into a shot. I thought it terribly nice of him. And LP let me use one of his honking big white Canon lenses... what a thrill! But yes, it does make one yearn for those bigger, better lenses once you've seen what they can do!
