Well, I finally pulled the trigger on my new rig. As you can see from the photos and title, I went with a Canon T2i and a Tameron 17-50mm F2.8 VR lens. I also picked up a battery grip (I shoot mostly portrait orientation), new tripod, and a couple of filters. Yay! My poor credit card peed its pants when the clerk ran the gear through the machine. As long as I don’t eat until Labour Day I’ll be fine — either that or sell a bunch of photos between now and then. I guess I better start getting used to water. 🙂 When I finally do figure it out I’ll give you some impressions from the point of view of a newbe to DSLR.
No photos yet. I still have to charge the batteries and read the daunting manual. I’m hoping to be able to take my first photo with it by my birthday in June. Wish me luck. 😉
