Hi there,

I'm currently (impatiently) waiting for my new lens to arrive, Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG Macro Lens, ordered on the good advice from this very forum - just wondered if anyone had any close up shots to whet my appetite with...

Cheers,

Nelson.

Nice!

I did a search for Hollowlegs, but couldn't find anything - did you mean here, or on Flickr?

If you look in my photo album on here 99.9% of those were taken with this lens. You can see that it took me some time to get used to the camera and lens ;)

Thanks a bunch - exactly what I needed to tide me over until it arrives..!

I've bought my kit blind with no previous experience, just after weighing up the advice from this forum and my budget, managed to find a new 350d and then the extra lense and a mem card for a total of £400.

I've read that i need some AV filters to protect my lenses, but not sure what they are/for - since i'm here, any tips?

RE: posting shots when I get my kit - deffo! i've already got my idea for the competition this month.

Cheers guys.

Nelson.

Thanks macker

For recommending my album. Would highly recommend this lens, and think for the price is great value.

Thanks for the nice comment :)

I'm really, really pleased with how this one turned out - couldn't believe it when i'd loaded it from camera into Zoom Browser.

Not had my DSLR long (about 3-4weeks now) and it's brilliant :thumbsup:
