    I just ordered a polarizer. They sure as heck have gotten expensive since the last one I bought!

    I also am convincing myself that I need the Canon EF-S 10-22mm lens next in my arsenal. I got a nice Canon backpack for Xmas so I need to fill it with ****.

    Momma gave this to me for Christmas.

    http://www.adorama.com/SG10528DNKAF....acro&item_no=7

    As soon as the weather breaks, I'll run it through the paces.

    It has killer reviews everywhere I read. Shoud be a good medium macro...

    Well, I bought myself a Canon 40D on Christmas Eve. I knew Santa wasn't gonna fork out the dough for that bad boy. I'm at the fun part which is learning how to use all the features this thing has. It's quite an upgrade from the Digital Rebel. The kit came with a really nice image stabilized 28-135mm zoom lens. As soon as I get some worthwhile shots, I'll post a few up.

    Let me know if you have any questions. I got a 40D kit (w/ the 85mm lens) and I totally dig it.

    So I went out this morning and shot the wad. I picked up:

    - A set of Promaster extension tubes

    - A Manfrotto 055XPROB Tripod

    - A Manfrotto 486RC2 Ball Head

    Let me tell you, this tripod and ball-head are AMAZING pieces of machinery. The tripod itself is rock-solid and has leg angles up to nearly 90 degrees (which means it can sit very very low to the ground). It also has a center column that can be mounted horizontally as well as updide-down for strange angles or macro photography.

    The ball head is really strong! Listed max capacity is a bit over 13 pounds, but I loaded it up today with my D200 (with the battery pack), the 70-200 lens, and all the crap I could literally hang off the mount to see if I could get it to move and it held up like a champ. I imagine that it could handle some of Nikon's big lenses with little or no problem! The quick-connect mount is extremely solid, with absolutely ZERO play when the plate is locked into the head. It has a quick-release that works flawlessly, along with a safety that prevents you from accidentally disengaging the locking mechanism.

    The extension tubes should be in next week some time. I'll be macroing like a mofo soon.

    Good Christmas haul for me!
