Nice pics. I love my 40 STM. Has me thinking about selling my nifty fifty. The 40 almost never hunts for focus and even though the fifty is 1.8 the 40 seems to perform better in lower light.

I was trying to get a feel for hand holding a 400 on an APS-C crop body so I put the old Quantaray on my T3i . Shot this at 1/1000, F11, ISO 3200 with the Quantaray.

Think I paid $79 new for the lens at Wolf Camera about 1980. It is a "preset" lens. Major PITA to use but possible if you have time. I originally bought it to use with my Pentax ME Super. It is a T mount so I bought a $10 adapter from Adorama to use with the T3i.

No chance for the actual sunset but I thought the cloud formations and colors looked great:

35mm f/2

Hello: I'm new here on the forums, having just purchased a Canon 40D camera with the 18-55mm kit lens. Purchased the camera about three weeks ago, and have been reading and testing the camera. Today, I had to pull a dead tomato plant out of a raised flower bed, in my backyard. I have four pet chickens that were excited to "help" me. For this picture, I got down to the chicken's eye level, and took a close shot at around four feet away from my chicken. Setting was full auto, green box. It may not be the best picture, however, I'm still learning what this camera can do--especially coming from an old Canon film camera.

Welcome!
Chickens always look to me like they know they taste good, and are terribly disappointed by their predicament.

I took this with my Rebel T3 and the 55-250. Sorry for the low quality I took it off of Facebook because I am not sure where the original is because I took it like a year ago, and I had my PC die out me a couple months ago. If I find the original Ill update the post with the pic

The amount of detail in the raw file is insane.
