New lens

Today we headed to St George to do a little shopping, well, maybe more than just a little. I hit the outlet stores for a couple more long sleeved shirts and another quarter zip fleece. Jeans, t-shirt and a quarter zip fleece is my winter uniform of sorts.  Then I got my Christmas present, a new lens for my camera. My long lens is a Canon 2.8, 70-200mm and it is a great lens but a beast to carry around so I usually don't. For outdoor photography I don't necessarily need the 2.8 lens so I have been looking for a new longer focal length lens. Here is what I chose:
Tameron AF 18-270 f/3.5-6.3 DiII VC LD Aspherical (IF) Macro

I already have one Tameron lens that I love so I am excited about this one. Tomorrow we are headed back to hike in Zion if the weather cooperates and I will be trying out my new lens, can't wait.

We went to the pot luck tonight in the resort and had a great time. Mason, the manager and Becky who is next to us were at our table. We got laughing so hard at one point we were crying. Good food and good company, just can't beat that.


  1. Know the feeling, we gave ourselves (me mostly) some early Christmas presents of gadgets for our camera...3 or 4 different lenses, filters, a new case and once this Christmas lot is over we will experience with them all.

  2. Can't wait to see some photos from your new lens.

  3. I love fleece in cool weather. Isn't it great to be able to wear comfortable clothes every day and not have to get dressed up to go to work.

    I did a little shopping this week, too. We went to Kohls so I could get a few more pairs of long pants. Their Gloria Vanderbilts fit me better than any others I've found.

    Now the temps are predicted to be in the 80s so back to shorts. I'm not complaining!

  4. WOW! aren't you the lucky one?

    Nice lense. Can't wait to see some pictures.

    Travel Safe
