That is harsh! I guess this is why me and my wife don't have a shared economy :)

We dont share funds either but its hard to explain new camera gear! lol Plus making my camera pay for new gear BEFORE i buy it, makes more financial sense.

This is becoming a relationship thread, sorry, but I find this so interesting :)

This is your hobby, right? She probably has hobbies she spends on money on, EVERYONE does. I don't understand why you would have to explain spending money on a hobby that you enjoy.

And you are not even talking about expensive gear. You are talking about a really cheap telezoom that only costs 349 bucks. I would get your point if your economy was cramped and you sell your car to buy a 1D X with a bunch of L lenses instead :D

Anwyay, that's just my opinion, to each own :cool:

Lol. Her hobbies don't make money and mine does. So mine can pay for itself. I just like to also use the money my camera makes to pay to take her out and things like that. So, I feel like I am being selfish when I buy myself things even though it's already paid for itself. I'm just nice like that I guess... lol She always tells me I spoil her too much but I like it. Maybe THAT is also one of my hobbies? :cool:

If you don't mind me asking, where were you able to get the 55-250 STM for $270? I've been wanting this lens for awhile now but I can't bring myself to pay retail for it!

EBAY! lol... You just gotta watch for em and read about the seller. I don't buy from sellers who aren't in the US. Just read the description carefully and ask them questions to make sure its what it says it is. I got mine and it works fine.

DID YOU GET YOUR LENS YET?

I am confident you will like it. We have both and the STMs are always the ones that get used.! Much nicer lens than any I have ever purchased at this price point.

Happy shooting, you may do more tele now!!

Yea, I ordered it thursday and got it saturday! The STM is dead silent and fast AF! Its kind of weird not hearing the AF motor. I almost prefer the sound of an AF motor, lets me know it is working! lol

After reading this thread, I went to EBay and saw this:
http://www.ebay.com …enses&hash=item​4acefe77e1 (external link)

Is this correct? Seems so cheap (price).

Thanks for any info!

IQ is great! I did a walk around our yard and shot some but I formatted my card and forgot about the images...lol I will have to take some more soon! Been busy w work and other shoots. Its AF is fast and super quiet! The lens itself is pretty small and lightweight for its range.
