My mystery lens has arived......
It was all wrapped up and boxed carefully by our very own Mr. Schap. You might remember this thread.
Well he came through with flying colours that's for sure. I received a Sigma 18-50mm 3.5-5.6 yesterday for the small price of shipping. Don, you are the man!
I must say it is the ideal range. I finally understand all the hoopla about the 17-55 range. This makes my 12-24mm sigma decision more difficult.
Well on with the show....

The World's largest outdoor skating rink, The Riedau Canal. This was one of the most fun days I've had in a while. It was great to have a small lens I could take with me while I was skating. I felt much better knowing if I busted the lens while skating It would only be a few hundred bucks to replace and not like 1000, like the 12-24mm.

The crew/family, it was great to get outside and spend some quality time. Sorry if the pics are too snap shotty I was focusing more on having fun.

ISO 400 F14 SS 1/400 @18mm It's amazing to see everyone outside enjoying the winter weather, even if you can't skate you can still enjoy the atmosphere. It really is amazing, everyone is smiling and laughing around you.

Well that's it for now. I like the lens. I think it feels better then the kit lens does to me, the focus is loud but does the trick fast enough and accurately enough. It comes with a hood and is a nice package, especially considering I didn't pay for it.
Don, thank you so much for this. It really is amazing!
Note: I had a bunch of smiley faces all over the place but had to remove them because of the 10 image limit. :D
And I over did the PP on a lot of them, I know.... (blush)
