I was just very bad

I bought a new lens with my non-existent money.

Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G-AFS ED-IF VR

Used a friend of mines 80-200 the other day at Yankee Stadium and got addicted.

It hasn't gotten here yet, sadly. I'm hoping it'll be here before opening day on Thursday.

I got it and tested it out today. Certainly a big lens! It's a bit slow focusing, so we'll see. I'm taking it to the Yankees opening day tomorrow, then I'll post pictures.

Haha, sorry I snorted a bit when I saw that part. A 70-210 or 70-200 f/2.8 is a big lens, a 70-300/4.5-5.6 is medium sized at best. When your talking more then a kilo and nearly 20cm long, then your talking big. My 70-210/3.5 is as big and heavy as your lens and I wouldn't consider it big.

Anyway, I guess just a matter of perspective. Good luck with the lens and I hope you enjoy it.

You know you are a photography geek when you make comments like "I hope her aperature is large enough for my lens".
