Ordering a 17-40mm f/4L USM
a filter and a lens hood
First really nice lens for me really. I don't take too many pics at a distance, but this will hold me over for a while. Later on I will pick up another zoom for walkaround (just carry these two).
Can't wait until the day I can afford a full frame, but until then :]
L lenses are simply amazing dude. You won't be disappointed. I just got my 70-200 f2.8 L and I can't stop shooting since it got here.
I'm looking for things just around my room to shoot right now haha. Next up is a tripod and a flash or two.
I lost my mounting plate for my manfrotto tripod, so I've been subbing in a huge, old video tripod in the meantime :bang: Works, but it's bulky. *Gets on eBay to order a new plate*
Saving up for the new Canon speedlight with the radio trigger. One or two more big gigs and I'll probably have the cash to drop on one :)
Wonder if its been shipped yet :\
Josh, you see that smugmug raised prices? :[
I ended up ordering a 7D last week, and so I'm just waiting for it to arrive. So guess we get to share in excitement of new expensive stuff.
Also picked up a manfrotto 420B Combi Boom Stand for a series of shoots I want to do for a roller derby team before next season. More compromise in the mechanics of the stand than what I really want, but sadly that the budget didn't leave a huge number of options for what I could play with.
Still need to play with my light plan and figure out my modifiers. Hoping I can get the quality of light I want out of simple large card stock bounces. Don't want the light too soft as they're derby girls and I want to keep some harshness in the mix, and want to control spread for more of a low-key style. So should be a fun shoot. Just need to get a location to do it in, seeing as all the rings are switching to ice starting in the next week or so, and we're losing all our space.
Sounds fun. I am looking at a manfrotto + head combo through adorama. Best deal I have found.
Manfrotto makes some good stuff.....thinking about it, most of my "being used_ accessories are bogen now. I've pretty much gone away from anything else.
The 17-40 is an amazing lens at an amazing price. I've owned 3 of them, and loved them on a full frame body. Now that I'm shooting crop sensored bodies, it isn't wide enough for me.
PS, the 17-40 comes with a lens hood, as all L lenses do, along with a lens bag as well.
