What do you mean "what is a bunny machine?" :confused:

Oh, you don't speak Emilie-ese?? I'm sorry!!! :eek:

Allow me to translate: we went to the ATM so that Emilie could buy Mommy an 85/1.8D for Mother's Day. :tongue: :biggrin:

A quick test shot in the apartment of the student from whom we bought the lens. Not too shabby for hand held at 1/20sec. (f/1.8 at ISO 200) :biggrin:

Congrats on your new lens!! I love the term "Emilie-ese". Way to cute. I thought you were going to the bear making store not the atm.

Gretchen,

Congrats on the new acquisition! You got a super deal.

Just remember, as parent photographers we're only spending all this money on photo gear to make our children look good so as to foster positive self-esteem.
Best interest of the child and all that. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :wink:

Oooohhh.....the bear store, that might yield large lenses, I'll suggest that in December!! :biggrin:

I'm not sure why she got stuck on "bunny" instead of "money," but it was worth a laugh. "Almost 2" really is a fun age! :smile:

Thanks Glenn, your advice this afternoon was much appreciated. :smile:

And yes, always with the best interests of the child. You know, THAT is what the 300mm is for......older children who are embarrased by their parents' presence. :tongue:

Um, yes, I was/am. I think I must have tripped on that 85/1.8 thread. Gotta learn to pick up my feet, my Dad has told me that for YEARS! :tongue:

The 70-300 will be on hold for a bit (maybe). :smile:

Congratulations on the new lens Gretchen, both the 85 1.8 and the 70-300VR on on my wish list for Father's Day.:smile:

Tony,

If you're willing to drive a bit (i.e. up here to MA), keep an eye on Craig's list. That's where I found this and lately, there's been all sorts of interesting stuff on there. :smile:

Cute kid....my daughter is named Emily as well...she spoke Emilie-ese a while back...

Her term when she was 4 or 5 was "fridge-a-later" because we always put stuff in there that we wanted for later. :) Kids......

Congrats on th lens!

Excellent shot:>)))
Nice lens
Thank you Gale, it is a lovely little lens....not big and heavy, but nice IQ and a great focal length! :smile:

Hey Gretchen, next time you're at the bunny machine would you get a fistful for me?

My your little one is adorable.

Thank you! I "just" missed the shot of her staring mouth agape at the guy I bought it from. He had some significant tatoos on his arms and she was in awe. Ah, timing...... :rolleyes:

I love it!!! Kids really are sharp, they certainly make you see things in a new light. :biggrin:

Congrats on your new tool. Emily is very cute.
Thank you Sam, hopefully someday she'll actually want to look at the camera. :rolleyes:

Congrats on the lens; glad to see you're putting it to good use already. Love the shot.

Ok, back to work-gotta earn some bunny!
Thank you Dave! I look forward to a summer of portraits and really working on technique and composition. :smile:

Of the bunny, tell your boss that you might need a hare more! :eek: :tongue:

Great story, brings back memories of when my daughter was very very young, with my wife, and she asked Kristin, do you want some food, my daughter said, "Fries" "Fries", Of course I got blamed for that word, but it was actually her grandfather who gave her her first french fry, so Diane being what she thought was quick thinking said, sorry Kristin, we don't have any money,

Next words out of her young mouth was "machine" "machine" they sure do learn words fast!

Congrats on the lens.

Congrats on the new lens Gretchen! Your daughter is so cute .... and I love the story about the Bunny Machine, but I can tell she knows a great lens when she sees one ..... especially when she tells her Daddy why she "bought" it for you! :eek:)
