Thanks, Glad you like it :)
I used Sony's 70-300 G lens. . . that is the one I use exclusively due to how quick it focuses and how crisp the photos turn out. I luv it !

AH! I have the older twin! (70-400G) :D

The reviews between the two are mixed; people can't decide which is better - but they all agree both lenses are very good.

I think the wide aperture primes are overrated with regards to depth of field. Telephotos do it best! :highfive:

Not much at all. Just took a time out today, for the first time in months, and went to the zoo here in town. I really enjoyed myself but, it is so hot here right now. . .had to take advantage of any shade available. Hope you have been well.

Tell me about it. Were hitting hundreds again after a good break from them. It's misserable.

Well, since we last talked, I got into college and am entering my second week of actual classes and my third week here on campus.
