Actually Ron, she is ! I met her several years ago as a model, and we became friends. Couple years ago she said she would like to try being on the back side of the camera. She is a wonderful "people person"....everybody just loves her personality, and she can pose and direct people very well. So at the time, I handed her the old D30 (the old 3 megapickle body from Y2K ! ) with the 17-40, and said, "here, play with this for a few weeks and see what you get". Wow....she has a very creative eye, and just fell in love with the whole deal. So I put photoshop on her computer, and when she wants to try something new, she googles it, finds a tutorial, and works her way thru it. Not kidding, this is a bright girl, learns quick. We're working thru getting her up to speed on the technical understanding of all this. I found a used 40D that I got for her, and an old 28-105. She is having a blast, and getting some darn good results !
She lugs around a one series with the 200 f/2 and never even mentions the weight.....all she ever says is "I love this lens !" LOL....gotta love a girl like that.
