Default Out with the black, in with the white.....

Did I confuse enough people on the title?



Just picked up this little beauty today



mmmmmmmm 70-200 2.8L


Came with hood, tripod ring mount and carrying case, I guess they feel that they have to give you some extra stuff when they rape you so bad on the price (The way it translates into paintball pricing is you could pre-order just about any '09 gun that is coming out )





On camera:



All my lens I have at the moment: (left to right) Canon 50mm 1.8 II, Canon 28-135 IS USM, Canon 70-300 IS USM, Canon 70-200 2.8L:



Made a new avy and left it big size also b/c I thought it looked cool lol:

Nope that was a extra $500 and it added about another pound to the lens weight, I wouldn't even want to haul that thing around all the time this one is heavy enough at about 3 lbs. Plus the F2.8 aperture makes up for lack of stabilizer. You can get the F4 with stabilizer for alittle cheaper then the one I got but F4 isn't fast enough to freeze action in low light so the stabilizer basically doesn't do any good unless your taking pics of still objects. I took a bunch of pics after sunset and had a keeper rate of about 9 out of 10, which is higher then I was getting with my 70-300 since it is F4 on the short end and F5.6 on the long end, it basically kicks its ass in perform all the way around.

O and you were right, the lens cost me more then the body with 28-135mm kit lens

Bwahahaha. I knew it.

People think paintball is expensive...

Hmm. I wouldn't go anywhere with that without at least monopod though hahaha. My arms aren't strong/steady enough to make good enough support. Plus, I think I'm part Chiuaua (SP) because I can't sit completely still.

non-IS

I've thought about getting back into photography, but I've been spoiled by L glass. I'd drop $5000 without even knowing it on lenses alone after buying a body.

I'm going to have to pick something up soon here to keep up with Dave... Might have to start selling off guns. Funny thing is that I only have about $3g's of paintball guns, and about $1500-1700 worth of camera stuff, and I don't even have that much!

Hey Muddy, Have you taken any pics of the moon?

I bet you could get some sweet shots with that big honkin' lens... Here's ome I took with my outdated dsc-3.... They didn't turn out very well. Alot of motion blur even though I was using a tripod.... I couldn't get the settings to work for me, not that I know what I'm doing or anything... plus there must have been high humidity and the moon light was reflecting off of the droplets. Couldn't see that with the naked eye but the camera caught it. That cloud looked so cool going in front of the full moon. I wish I had the ability (and equipmnet) to capture it....
