I’ve had a Canon Digital Rebel for about five years, but this past week I purchased my first new lens. I’ve been hesitant to buy a new lens because they can get expensive. What it took was me shooting some pictures of a Memorial Day Parade and during the entire event thinking “Gah! If ONLY I could ZOOM in closer!” I had the 18(?)-55mm lens included in the box.
For a guy like me, who once knew how what all the shooting modes on a Canon camera meant and then forgot what they mean after buying a cell phone and using that for photos, getting a new lens is a prime opportunity for buyer’s remorse. But I think I’m happy with the results. Here’s a photo I took of my sister’s dog that I think turned out pretty well.
