I couldn't wait...walked onto the deck and fired off an image of the tree lilac. The "beast" is awesome and I can't wait to get out and shoot some more with it..... Ah, life just got better

Thanks Ken and I hope to post some more images very soon...especially if the spotty rain showers want to quit sometime soon.

Isn't this forum a beautiful place to be? I always wanted to post such a pic, one that comes right from the heart, joyful moment with a new lens... but never actually could on dpreview because of the instantaneous "loser" replies... lol

Enjoy that lens, it's sexy, isn't it?

"Sexy" would definately be a fitting word to describe this lens. And I agree with you about how pleasant this site is. There was absolutely nothing special about the image that I posted and I appreciate not being beaten up by folks that want to take the opportunity to tell me so...I guess that I have come to enjoy some of the regulars on the Cafe that would be happy for others when they have some good fortune...in my case, a new, "sexy" lens. I owe many on this site a huge thanks because I have learned so much in the very short time that I have been a member. A great website with great people!

Yep! That is such a serene scene. The first capture from a new lens can be so inspiring (or comical if your seven year old bumps into you and you shoot your feet) :lol: The Beast is on my wish list. :) Enjoy your new lens. I look forward to many wonderful images.

You know, even as it was a fun test shot with a new lens the simplistic composition, excellent quality, and contrast make this a very appealing pic to my eye.

I like it!

I am sure we all have collections of "first shots" that are taken as we step outside. Mundane would be too kind a word to describe them, but that's a nice shot . Thanks

Love your candid wedding shots. I am almost embarassed to
say that I think I recognize that drinking hole (Antonio's nut house).
I used to work for Sun Micro in Ireland and had a few trips out to
the Bay Area and one of the afficionados who knew where to
get pitchers of beer and a good game of pool brought us there.
It is near San Jose ... or is it a Californian chain and I am dreaming?

Thanks, ILens, but somehow your message got posted on the wrong thread. I'm not quite sure of which picture you're referring to, but the candid wedding shots were taken in Morro Bay, which is 180 miles south of San Jose.

Sorry - crossed wires. I can't recall now if I was replying on
a thread you posted on this forum or dpreview. It showed
the zooming ability of a Sigma or Tamron 18-200mm lens
and the main subject was a nut bar in Northern California
if I am not mistaken. I seemed to remember that bar or
one very similar to it from about 5-7 years ago when I
visited the Bay Area on a work assignment.

Love your 28-70mm work by the way. Great exposition of
the abilities of the lens and the photographer.

Now I've got it. It was my "zoom zoom zoom" thread on the lens lust forum. Here's the nut-bar:

It's on California Street in Palo Alto, right across from Keeble & Suchat, the largest camera store in northern California.

Thanks, IL. I love the lens; it makes me look like a better photographer than I really am 8).
