Getting a New Lens!

I need a new wider angle lens, and I found a great deal on a used mint 17-55!!! I'm really excited, it's a beautiful workhorse lens!!! I think I'm going to sell my Tamron 28-75 and the 85mm 1.8 now and look in to the 85 1.4 next. I love getting new glass and it's been so long Smile

That's awesome. I've been begging DH to let me buy some new glass as well.
Don't know if you're canon or nikon girl, but if you're a nikon girl, I may be interested in that 85 1.8. Smile

Jenn I have that lens and I absolutely love it!!! I'll be so sad to part with it one day if I ever go full-frame. It's fantastic! A bit heavy, but that just gives me peace of mind that I'm working with professional glass. Smile

I'm a Nikon girl! I'm pretty excited about it, I'm not going to full frame for awhile, but I figure that if I do, it will be my dedicated lens for my D300 as a backup body. Lisa, I'll let you know first when I'm ready to part with the 85mm, I have a bit of savings to do before I can upgrade to another one!

Insert Facebook thumbs-up "like" symbol here! Smile I went to the camera store yesterday but just to get a lens cleaning rag--all the budget would allow. Have fun with the new lens!
