    went to shoot an old historic graveyard after sunrise this morning, and man does this lens kick ass. Can't wait to truly get comfortable with it. I'll share pics later.

    That sounds like a lot of fun. A buddy of mine suggested that to me a few days ago.

    Well, what can I say? They really are incredible lenses. They just open you up to a whole new perspective on photography.

    When I bought my used body, it didn't come with a lens. I ordered a nifty fifty and so my first DSLR setup is an XTi + nifty fifty. I am going to order my 2nd lens pretty soon. No way possible that I can afford an "L" lens right now so I know that I may get frustrated a little when shooting in low light situation or when wanting that awesome bokeh. The downside to owning a nifty fifty is being spoiled.

    I have only read good things about this lens. I ordered mine off of amazon and am expecting it by the end of the week.

    Anything i need to know about the lens? (considering i am a COMPLETE noob)
