My lens collection is growing. Since I'm broke, I'm a Gold Ring kind of guy, not red :D

This was handheld at 1/13 and 3200 ISO so I apologize for the little blur and noise. Just thought I'd share.

Nice little collection. Were any of them Christmas presents? That Tammy 70-300 VC is an amazing lens, as well as the 100mm. I prefer the Non-VC of the 17-50.

And IMO, a red ring is kind of like the mid-life-crisis Red Corvette! (Oh, I'm in trouble now!!! :D)

Thanks! :D The 17-50 VC was my Christmas present from my parents, the 100mm was the Christmas present to myself a couple of weeks ago haha

I got the VC because I'm generally pretty shaky, just any extra convenience at the price of some IQ in the pictures. So far I'm happy with it :D

haha if they can afford the red ring, then by all means go for it. But this guy is a couple bills short haha

Heya,

Good lenses.

Nothing wrong with no having a red ring. It doesn't automatically take better photos. Nor does having the latest and greatest digital SLR camera either. Putting a $10,000 camera setup in someone's hands who really isn't that skilled, will not bang out photos better than someone with a 6 year old setup that cost $200 tops used, but has very good skill and knowledge of light. Good equipment is nice. But most of what makes a good photograph is not the gear. It helps. But it's certainly not the biggest factor at all.

I think mid-tier equipment is where the value is at anyways. It lets you experiment more, grow skill, and determine where your big purchases will go eventually when you actually have the knowledge and experience to know it's worth it for your photography.

Very best,

Thanks :D

This could very well be the furthest I go with my main lenses. I like the f2.8 of the 17-50, which is why I was really interested in it. It performs well so far and is easily the most I need for at least the T3.

I agree, I know a couple of people with nicer cameras and lenses than I, but I've had better photo outcome due to slightly better knowledge.

Hopefully some nice lenses will allow me to venture out further yet.

Nice looking collection of lenses there. Remember, color doesn't make a picture.

As far as someone having a problem with my little Red Corvette, I know exactly where I'd like for them to stand when I bring it out :grin:

My cars and camera gear have one thing in common: when time and money permits, there's usually an advancement.

86 it is. Saw it at a car auction 1 day short of my birthday, so it was a gift from me to me, and only wanted one since 1954 :lol:
