24-70 - 280060308563

IT'S IN KNOXVILLE, TN! WAHOO! I hate this waiting game. I missed the order time to get it here on friday (yesterday) by 2 hours! ARGH! Oh well,it will be here monday.

Today when driving I found an awesome park where all the ducks and geese will walk up to anyone because they have been fed so much, SOOO, thats the first stop with the new camera! So look forward to the mandatory duck shot!

Brown showed up around 1:30 and I wasted no time getting that package open and that battery charging. After I got it charged I went to a local park that has A TON of ducks/geese/crossbreed​s and got some great shots, THEN I had a 6:30 family *brother and sister* shoot downtown so I drove down and shot that. The 5D performed just as expected. FLAWLESS. It took a lil bit of getting used to, but after I learned the new layout I was shooting like I had the camera for years, just feels so natural compared to a 350D/XT. Plus it makes my 17-40 SUPER WIDE, and that is awesome.

Here is one of the boxes and one from the brother and sister I did.

C&C welcome!
