First shots with the 28-70

  1. Was down the shore celebrating my fiancés 50th birthday this weekend, was able to take a few random shots with my new 28-70. I am very impressed with this lens it focuses so fast and it has a very short minimum focusing distance . I like the color and the bokeh is sweet. Well here are the first shots.

  3. Fifty? If I had to guess, I'd have been short by a dozen years... you lucky dog ;).

    Very nice results from The Beast... just as expected.

    Mike,

    UF is bad enough, but one person's pressure I can probably withstand. I really don't need for you to start egging me on too. I knew that the 28-70 was a great lens (I shot with Birger's during our visit), but these are just too much.

    STOP IT!!.... :lol:

    BTW, I think you had a typo in your original post. You meant 30, not 50, right?? 8)
     
  6. Thanks I will lell her congratulations, the lens is stellar I am going to have fun with this one
     
  7. Thanks Frank she is a very young looign woman, she will appreicate the comments.
    The beast will be a fun lens to get to know how to use. It looks liek everything I have heard
     
  8. :D glad to share the lust!
     
  9. Well UF did me in, I wanted something better than my 24-120 VR and this is one awesome lens very versatile and just a great performer

    Well you know me and spelling so it coudl be, but in this case she is just a fine lookign woman, I keep her young!

    Mike,

    On the first point, he seems to do that to a lot of us, especially with the 28-70 (I want that lens!!).

    On the second point, yeah right.... :roll:
