New lens

My latest eBay acquisition arrived today. A Sigma 18-125 DC. It’s virtually new, in fact there was a receipt in the box dated just three weeks ago.

The new lens is intended as a replacement for the standard 18-55 EF-S lens which I have found slightly limiting at times, the 18-125 should make a very good "normal" lens to leave on the camera full-time.

Work is still manically busy, hopefully I’ll clear most of the backlog this week leaving a quiet week or so in the run up to Christmas.

    I like my 18-125. Only thing is that it’s noisier than the kit lens and the minimum focus distance is a bit further away. Makes up for it in versatility, though.

    It is a bit noisy, but nothing much to worry about, and the 50cm focus distance isn’t a real issue as I don’t tend to do close-up stuff. The kit lens is just a bit too short really, and faffing around swapping to the 75-300 was too much like hard word.

    Matt, you definatley need a 300D, pop along to Jessops at lunchtime and buy one :)
