A New Treat

My super-sweet husband was super generous this past Christmas 
and gifted me with a new blogging tool.

As you can imagine, I'm loving it!!

I've put my favorite prime lens on and I've been snapping away.
I can really tell a difference in the sharpness and clarity of the pictures.

My first DSLR was a Nikon D40.
A very basic, great camera.
It was all I needed when I started taking pictures past a point and shoot.
I even started using the manual mode on this camera.

Now I'm ready for a new challenge--learning this new camera,
and the multitude of features that it has.  

Also, I just recently ordered this lens.

It is supposed to be the perfect, do-it-all lens, for enthusiasts like me--a total non-professional.
It's range is 18-33mm, 
so hopefully I won't even have to change lenses on our upcoming vacation.

I would love to hear---
What camera do you use?
What's your favorite lens?


  1. Ooooh, niiiice. I have a Canon and I just have the stock lens that came with it. Someday, maybe when the kids are older, I'll take some time to really learn what the heck I'm doing. Ha!

  2. What a great gift. I love my nikon - best me purchase ever.
