Eeek a new toy

And it’s not for the kids!

For a long time now I have wanted a new lens for my Canon DSLR. I have had my camera for a long time and I’m sure that there are much better models out there. I have the 450D which when I got it was a pretty good camera… well it still is. It came with its standard kit lens but there were times when I would get frustrated with only being able to zoom so far and I always wanted to go that but further.

So after some research and having it on my amazon wish list I finally took the plunge and bought it. Well not quite the one on my wish list as I managed to find it for much cheaper.

So this is the lens that I bought,  it’s the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 III lens



I think I got a pretty good bargain with this it only cost £80 the RRP is around £200

It has a good weight to it and of course its heavier that the kit lens, here’s a picture of it on the camera body.


I am so excited to head out and start using it. Photography is a love mine and I wish i would make more time to get outside and snapping.

Do any of you have this lens would love to know your thoughts and tips if you have any.
