    Default My Christmas gift

    My husband totally surprised me this Christmas! He got me the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L II IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens. I'm still in shock.

    I was saving up for the previous version lens (70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM) so I was totally shocked that he got me the current one.

    Now I need some nice weather so I can get outside with it. It's super heavy, my arm was hurting after using it for 5 minutes on Christmas Eve.

    Meanwhile, I'm over 300 photos behind in editing for this month. That's the downside of shooting in RAW. I had a session early this month (finally blogged it here - http://flashbulbspurpleirises.wordpr...-photographer/) and editing that took a while. I hope to catch up here soon, as well as share some of my latest with you.

    I hope everyone here had a nice Christmas (if you celebrate it), and that the new year brings lots more pictures!!!

    Even better than that, I got it on Christmas Eve! We always open one present on Christmas Eve, and he was dying to give it to me.

    Woo hoo!!!! You're gonna LOVE it! The old version totally changed my photography. I imagine the new one is even more magical.

    Congrats! You'll love it, despite the weight. I use it almost all the time. The bokeh is so delicious in it.
