So on this day of love I've decided to make a list of why I love my lens and thought I'd get some input from everyone else. This can be from either gender and just for fun, so keep it nice. My lens is a she and to start it off I'll just say a lens is better than a woman because even though she was expensive at first, she'll end up costing me less than a relationship. :D

Yup... this is going to get some people in trouble. :-|


I like to push buttons on thingies that take pictures. Sometimes I like to push other buttons, too.
I only bite on the second Tuesday of every week, usually only mean people - they kinda taste like chicken...

They aren't insecure about their wide apertures.

You can sure put some use on her, she might get old, she might look a little rough on the outside but damn she still performs great and feels just as good holding her as when you first got her.!

If you shake it too much while it's down it'll get longer!
