On a recent trip to Boston, my hubby surprised me with a 10-22 mm Wide angle lens. NICE!!
I came home from work today, to pack for our trip tomorrow to Chicago, as our son is graduating from Boot Camp on Friday!!! I walk in the door, and on the table is a box. But not just an ordinary box. Its a Canon box. My first thought is, did I do that? Did I leave a box on the table, and no remember? Then I see a red "L".. I'm like - HOLY CRAP!!! :eek:

I can't believe it!!! He went to DC today, and went to Penn Camera and came out with a 70-200 f/4 L IS USM!!!!! as a surprise for me for our trip!!!!!

WOO-HOO!! My first L!! 'sigh'.:D :D :D :D
oh yeah, the saleman told my hubby, "be warned, my friend, once she goes "L", she'll never go back". !!!!!!!!

PS. Oh yeah- no PP whatsoever on the tulip...!!!!! (altho the first one could use it; since the "L" baby was taken with a kit lens!!!

Here it is!!

You're gonna love it. I'm crazy about my non-IS model, but really would love to try the IS model. Your second picture rocks!

Once you've had L, that's what you'll yell. What a great hubby.

Congratulations! (and nice job on the tulips, too!)

If I ever came home and found a Canon box on the table I'd have to duck and run, since it would mean my wife found my "stash". :eek:

My first "L" (70-200 2.8L) is on it's way, due to arrive tomorrow.

Are there any greater words than:

It is amazing how clear that is!!! Now, ya'all have to understand, my hubby knows nada about photography!!! His idea is to point the camera sort of towards the subject, and fire away... But even he was amazed at the clarity!!!!!!:D

Hmmm, while the idea is appealing, I am ready to travel with him now that my son is in the Navy, and my daughter is old enough to take care of herself!!!!

Altho, if you mow lawns, we may have a position available, since it was recently vacated when he ran off to boot camp!!!!!!!!:D
