A Bit'O Gear Lust

I've set up an little photo expedition to the Oakland zoo this weekend with a couple of friends and I've rented a honking big lens for the occasion. I've had some serious lens lust for the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM lens for a while now but just can't spend the money on it, nor, frankly, would I want to without trying it out first. Hence the rental. Camera lens rental is the greatest invention since sliced bread, in my opinion. I just had to use the lens and get it out of my system.

What I've also found is that this focal length is a very popular range, so I'm rethinking my decision to go with the Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8. Although I've rented this latter lens for my vacation to Costa Rica; I'm going to stick with that decision because I do want to see how the lens performs.

In the meantime I'm gonna get some hot shots of the elephants in the Oakland zoo. Whee!
