Nah. Nothing wrong with it. You make a good point. Maybe I'll keep it and just buy something else, too. I'm bored, I guess. Lol

Here's your cue..;)

If you are really bored, you could sell the 28-75 and replace with a tamron 24-70 2.8. You would not gain any speed but would gain imagestablization, usm type focus motor, and it is alot wider.

That is the eventual plan. :)

How bout some studio strobes! Seems like everything is going well for yah!

Ha! Right on cue! :)

That's an idea. I have a gal coming Thursday for some studio shots. I'll keep strobes in the back of my mind as I'm using the speedlights to see if I wanna add that way.

there's a local camera/accesories trade/sell yesterday and there is an alienbees B800 for $200. The owner claims it's almost brand new. Do you think it's a good buy? is it good for a huge softbox?

i have the owner's phone number in case it won't sell.

i don't know anything about alienbees.

it looks like this.

I use the alien bees. Snag it for that price. They are an amazing flash unit and built like tanks. You will not find anything comparable to the alien bee even at regular price from my research. I use a massive 64" PLM with the b800 and it easily lights it. I'm actually working on the lower end of the power range the unit provides.

Depends on how far the light is from the subject. I rarely flash at max power and I usually shot about 1/2 power around F8. Subject distance around 4-6 feet.
