For Christmas I upgraded my Canon to a 500D (and my 400D/Rebel xti went to a good home, didn’t it Sheila?!) and today my new lens arrived.
I know little about lenses and their various attributes but was looking for something which would be good in low light. This lens was recommended (thanks Dave) – it’s a Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG Macro lens.
However, this afternoon it was proving to be quite a challenge to get the manual focus to function! Again, after guidance from Dave, I managed finally to work out that the focus ring needs to be moved forwards for Autofocus and back for Manual, but it definitely wasn’t obvious!
So tonight a photo of George, the cat, taken with the new lens:
And a few of my janmary designs jewellery creations taken with the lens earlier this afternoon
What did you get for Christmas? Or spend your Christmas money on?
