I got enough money through orders to order it 2 nights ago, never thought it would show up today. imagine my shock when it did! andorama rocks my socks. I did some prom pics for my sons aunt and her friend. They were getting ready and I couldn't believe how fast this lens was! wow. It just sucks up any light there is. Does anyone else think the rebel is noisy as hell though at iso 800?? I mean, I thought it would handle it better than it does (imo) Anyway, these are the 5 favorites (of mine). I won't bore you with the regular posey posey stuff. Comments? Critisisms? Things to do better next time? 1. 2. 3. I have a few of this one, but chose this one to show. I like the deep shadowed siloutte better than the properly exposed ones. 4. Not sharp, I know. 5. Here's me!!! adding one more. sorry! 2 more. and thats it.
