New Glass = Happy Photog

What makes a Photog happy?  New glass, of course.  😀  And I gots me one of my dream lenses on it’s way.

The worst part of a long distance purchase is definitely the shipping time.  And the way Canada Post has been the last year I’m none too confident in them.  So cross your fingers for me that my new glass (a 80-200 2.8 Nikkor lens) makes it’s way here in a speedy and SAFE manner.

For the non-photogs amongst my readers, this lens is (arguably) one of the best Nikkor lenses ever made.  It’s a mid-range zoom that is capable of capturing action in low light situations.  It’s a heavy piece of glass, but is one of those lenses that will outlive your camera body.  It’s a gooder… and I soooo can’t wait to get shooting with it.  I’ve been lusting after this one for a while.  😀
