  3. Congrats (to both of you), it is truly a wonderful lens! :smile: I had a very hard time getting it off my camera for quite some time. Look forward to seeing your shots with it. :smile:

    Thanks Chris. I was expecting some BIG lens to be called the Beast. Why is this lens nicknamed as such?

    Congrats Sonya - I got mine recently from the sale forum as well.

    It simply rocks. I don't have any "wow" photos with it yet, but here's one recent
    shot from a session.

    This is the (physicly) largest mid range zoom you will find.:eek: 

    Sonya, you are going to love this lens, if you can lift it.:biggrin:
    Maybe a workout rutine, some curls would probably do the trick.
     
  16. No kidding! I have it on my D300 with grip and it's going to take some getting used to. My heaviest by far! I'll go take some pics now.....but like I said, we're in the middle of moving into a new home so my shooting time has been ZERO! I'm having withdrawals.....
     
  17. Linda, I don't see a photo, just a protected by owner graphic.

    Get your family stuff done first, then put your full attention on getting familiar with THE BEAST. Lets see some photos of those cute little girls:wink:
