    I just got back from a 4 day trip to Bethany Beach in DE. I went there with my entire family to celebrate my 30th bday. I created an earlier thread about what my wife did for me here:
    https://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/showthread.php?t=237174.

    But on Saturday, my sister and her husband gave me their gift first thing in the morning. They wanted to give it to me on my birthday and wanted to make sure I got the most possible use out of it. Check it out, I'm soooooo excited:

  2. The only thing better than a new lens is a free new lens!
