    New Lens on my camrea !

    Hey everyone..

    Just got home today from Henrys.. Picked up a new lens for my canon.. As we all know i have been debating as i really dont have cash! .. Well i picked on up.. its not the "Best lens" But it is a upgrade to my current lens in both Zoom and Macro..

    Picked up the Sigma 70-300mm f4-5.6 APO

    here are some images..

    First up, The camera with the lens attached!



    Next up,

    my Old lens ( 18-55mm ) @55mm



    and then the new lens @300mm



    And here is a Macro.. First one i took.. Need play alittle more with it to get it working right



    And here is a acro.. in the back of the tank, that i could never really get a decent shot off.. Again, needs some work



    Thanks
    Michael.

    I really like that tang shot, looks like I may have to buy yet another camera.

    This one is a cheapy.. $360..

    A decent lens.. like the canon model with image stablity would be $950 and then move up to the "L" Series with the hight end glass (70-200mm) its $1700..

    I only want to purchase two more lens

    100mm Macro lens by canon its $999 and the 70-300 L f2.8 series lens i think is around $2500 and then that will be it.. i will be set
