Actually only one of these shots was with the new lens I bought the Tamron 17-35 F/2.8-4 wide angle lens, for use with my Digital Rebel. I like it. It's a much much better build than the kit lens, and it's sharper, from what I've seen so far. I'll have to do some comparison tests. Anway, I also bought a canon remote switch, so I decided to get some wildlife shots with my Sigma 70-300. 1st shot, with the wide angle: With the Sigma 70-300mm: I believe that is a green heron.
