    He's beautiful Brian. Nice image. I have been debating buying the 35-70 as the Beast is unavailable new.

    Man....he is so beautiful! Makes me want another one! Oh......the lens seems nice too.:wink:
  4. He's absolutely precious.......
    Looks like the lens was perfect for the job!
  5. Thanks for the kind words. I think he's the most beautiful boy I've seen... :biggrin: but I'm biased.

    I have changed my stance on the beast... it's a great lens, no doubt and produces some fine images but I think this lens does quite well for a third of the cost, half the weight and it also has macro (albeit it's manual focus) but the macro feature did it for me. I really think this is Nikon's sleeper lens.:wink:

    Thanks Stu. Go ahead and try for a boy this time... :biggrin:

    Thank you Terri. We really are enjoying him more than I could have ever dreamed. He makes me smile everytime I look at him...:Love:

    Wow Brian, congratulations! I'm sorry I missed the original thread announcing the birth of your son. He's a great looking baby.

    I love the father/son shot you posted last week.

    Again, congrats on the new baby and on the new lens.

  7. Come on Stu...you know you want a boy...3 is the perfect number of kids...:biggrin:
  8. Call me sometime at 3am...I'm usually up with Hannah...I hear you...

    But I love every minute of it, as I'm sure you do...:biggrin:

    Does he like Skyline yet? Congrats! You are blessed!
  10. Beautiful image, beautiful baby!! Congratulations!! Oh, and the 3 a.m. sessions won't last too long. My husband and I took turns watching 'Speed Racer' at 4 a.m. while our son smiled, blinked, and burbled at us. Not a hint of sleep in his eyes!! :wink:

    Nice pic Brian. i am having the same problem. My 1 month old daughter has got 2 speeds screaming and sleeping. Our nights have been short!
  12. Nice shot.

    I just picked up that lens and it's just terrific.

    What a wounderful shot. I am definetly considering that lens. We have been truly blessed. My 11 week old is sleeping about 7 - 9 hours at night.

  14. Beautiful baby, Brian... lovely skin and color :smile: Aren't they so soft? Glad to hear the lens works well... it's on my short list to compliment my 17-55 for a little more reach on the long end... keep us updated on the baby and the lens!
  15. Thanks for the kind words Tom. Always look forward to those great shots of your lovely little lady.:wink:

    :biggrin: I was there last night... it's weird how one night he can be fine and sleep most of the night, except for feedings and then nights like last night be up most of the time with no good reason. :rolleyes: :smile: but it's a good time and we are trying to focus on the good instead of the lost sleep. He's only going to be this small once. :wink:

    No skyline yet...:biggrin: Thanks

    I can definitely relate. TV after 1am leaves much to be desired...:rolleyes: 

    I feel for you... really do. Good luck and hang in there. Coffee is your friend... I know I couldn't live without it right now.

    Thanks Jim. I've been very pleased with the lens so far and confident it's going to be a keeper.

    Wow Dan, you are very fortunate! Thanks for the comments on the photo.

    You're right, he is so soft. I know there is going to be a day when having my face close to his skin isn't going to be cool so I'm enjoying it now... :biggrin:
  16. What a nice relaxed photo of your little guy. I am glad that you are enjoying the experience of fatherhood.
  17. Beautiful children, both child and lens! Congrats to you! BTW, sleeping through the night is overrated, the child is showing you the true path.... :)
