    Nice one, I've heard the 17-55 is a really nice lens. It's the next one on my lens lust list, so once you have given it a good test drive be sure to let us know what you think.

    open box
    look at ser # make sure its US...

    YES its US lens

    Good no leather useless case... nice black cloth bag
    snap ring lens hood.... locks in place.. I like it

  6. Bill, this is one tack sharp lens, great for a walk-around..... Wait til you see the landscapes it can shoot - everything is in focus!

    Dave, I've always loved that photo of yours, esp the little spot of sunlight at the top of the bridge - very nice!

  8. Wow... I want my Mtn bike on that bridge...

    what great jump that would make :twisted:
     
  9. Paul, very nice and VERY green!! Guess all that moisture falling out of the UK sky is worth it after all *LOL*

    Bill - and when you and your bike get to the end of the bridge, and I'm standing there with my camera on tripod, be ready to be introduced to my longest lens!! :twisted: *LOL*

  12. You better be fast... these bike are very quiet... and I've hit down hill speed up to 50mph....
    disc brakes 5' travel Front and Rear

    now I have a little nikon 5400 for travel... to much weight for a big 35mm
    and lens.
    There are great trails out there... and I now shoot while biking :twisted:

  16. I'm spoiled and on Cable Internet... :)
    some less fortunate people are only dial-up
    so I did not want to kill them with silly big files
    people want to see and read not wait for page/ image to load...

    I felt it was a little large... I got yelled at over on nikonians
    for my file size a couple time... now I'm hesitant to post
