    First shots w/ new Canon 17-40L

    Hey yall!

    Well, I'm in love! This new lens is really good. Its definately worth the $$. I can't wait for the wildflowers to bloom now!

    This is my first L lens, and I can't believe that its taken me sooo long to get an 'L'.

    The lens arrived this afternnon, and I took my kids out to my friend's peach orchard which happens to be in full bloom. We had a great time.

    No tripod today. All shots were handheld. The wind was blowing just enough to bug me. Everytime I wanted a closeup shot, the wind would pick up. Hopefully, I'll be able to go back tomorrow.

    Canon 10D - Darn battery!! It sure does drain fast!

    These are beautiful shots, Kathy. Nicely done! I especially like the last one. Great compositon. Could be a tad sharper on my screen but is lovely just as is.

    Good work with the new lens!

    Cool Excellent results from a great lens.....

    Hey Cowgirl!

    These are really nice images. The colors are right on, including skin tones. I have one "L" lens which is the 200mmf2.8 and it is one awesome lens. I even love just looking through the lens.......I agree the "L" lenses are the way to go - too bad we can't get all "L" lenses! When I got my Rebel, I recycled my lenses - sold 4 and bought 3 new ones, but better glass. My equipment has changed totally this past year. But awesome stuff!

    I was eyeing that lens, but could not even "think" about buying another thing - just got another (had one before & sold it) G3 to carry around with me.

    I'm glad to see the excellent quality of this lens. I wondered about it, but have seen very little images shot with it. Please keep posting.

    Way to go, Kathy!
