It took weeks of deliberation to decide whether or not I was ready to throw down the $1000+ to buy this lens (EF 24-70mm f/2.8L) but I knew I wanted it and, more importantly, needed it. So, last Tuesday, I finally bit the bullet and made the purchase. Hitting that purchase button and thinking about my credit card balance was bitter sweet, but shortly after I was forced to forget about mundane monetary issues and was overcome with the giggling excitement of a 5 year old!
After a week of waiting patiently, my lens is now in my hands and it is officially my new baby - after all it weighs as much as a newborn. I'll be fidgeting until I can get out and take it for a test drive!!
