Hello all; I've been lurking around the forum for a while gathering bit and pieces of info and I decided to join up this past August. I mostly read and never post but I wanted to say hi and that I'm now back following my passion! My first DSLR was a rebel T2i with the 18-55 kit lens and I later added a 50mm 1.8 II to get a feel for fixed focus and see how it worked for portraits. I ended up selling my rebel and the two lenses with the intention of buying something more mid-line, but I ended up spending the money on my Jeep..LOL. I truly missed my camera as I'd been without it for about a year. This pass year, I finally came up with the funds to get back into the hobby and get a new starter setup. I decided I wasn't going buy a DSLR and continuously upgrade little by little wishing I'd bought what I wanted to begin with, I decided to buy what I wanted and could afford out of the gate and I've been happy with my selection thus far. I ended up buying a Canon 5DS R for my body selection and for my first lens I decided on the canon 24-70mm F2.8L II. Buying both new set me way back, but I was thinking it would be a good foundation to build on. This lens is taking a lot of getting use to for me with not having the image stabilization and more of my pics are blurry than not, but I'm learning and getting use to it with the help of some great tips here. I'm putting the money aside and plan on buying the 85mm F/1.2L but I'm still about 4 months away from that purchase. Please keep posting all the great info, it's truly appreciated.
