    Question So, you got a new lens ...

    Okay ... Christmas is here and soon will be past ... the one question is up and it's going to be asked:

    "What lens did you get from Santa, this time?"

    Secondly: What was the first thing you shot with it, other than the wrapping it came in?

    C'mon you photo whizzes, 'fess up?

    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    I don't think I will be seeing a new lens this Christmas.........ahh well other phot gear to buy, and that Tamron 180mm and the 200 - 500 aren't going anywhere, don't think I will see a price drop though. I might have to get a glass fix from someone with some high quality used glass for sale here on the forum, (wink wink) know what I mean

    Not getting any glass this Christmas either. Just contributing to the lens fund . The Tamron 70-200mm was a welcome early gift though!
