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.

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!

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*
Jarrell has a better idea for bridges....

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

and lens.
There are great trails out there... and I now shoot while biking :twisted:

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
