New Lens!

20 05 2008

We got the 100-400L the other day…. I LOVE it.  If you are thinking about it… stop thinking and start saving!  Sharp… Lovely.  Obviously if you have the 400 F/4 you might not need it, but we mere mortals are VERY happy with this lens.

Here are some shots.  (For real detail, see the full sized photos by clicking on the images below:

Looks like a lot from Burnaby Lake.
Nice to see.

Burnaby Lake is SO close… it’s great to get out and take pictures of the birds there. Only 5 minutes or so from home!

It’s about 12 minutes from my place too, and one location I spend a lot of time at.
