shameless bragging below...

Ok you know the opening theme music for the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey? That's how I feel!

 

I finally got the lens I've been wanting for so long. Canon 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 L.... Yeah baby!

And... I got a Canon 1.4xII extender to go to way out there to 560mm.

And... a Sigma 10-20mm f4-5..6 wide angle lens that I didn't take out of the box until just a few minutes ago. But I'll try it out tomorrow.

They came with lens hoods and the cutest little cases, although now I need a big one to store all my gear.

I also got a really good quality UV filter.

 

I look like I'm carrying a cannon (unintentional but humorous pun).

 

Of course I had to try it out so I went to Brazos Bend SP and did some hiking. I just used Auto with manual focus and took my tripod, but used the monopod part of it most of the time (mine converts). It's definitely heavier, but not unmanageable. I just need to practice with it a bit because it definitely reacts to light differently than the 70-300mm.

 

So... I feel like I'm embarking on a completely new journey with my photography. I'm just so excited!!!! :)

 

BTW... SOOC with a crop!
