Last year when I purchase my DSLR, it came with 2 kit lens, a 18-55mm and a 55-200mm. While these lens have functioned well and fit many of my photography needs, I found I was forever changing between the two. Jokingly, I call B my “camera boy”. He, ungrudgingly, would carry and hand the lenses off to me as needed. Phriend even made me a fabulous lens bag to carry them so they were both at the ready. During my 50 + years and as a general rule, I don’t find I envy others.
Recently, after Phriend purchased a 28-300mm, I got a major case of the “I wants, I need to haves”. This lens covers most of the range I shot in and as an added bonus it ups to 300mm!
After pining for sometime and doing much investigating, Phriend and I went to our favorite camera shop. There sitting in the show case was this “must have“. I touched it, played with it, took several photos with it and drooled all over it. I treated myself to it! In celebration, Phriend and I just had to get out. Luckly for me I found this roller blader out practicing his skill too.
