Mine!

I have a new lens: EF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM



It came in to work used and I got a heck of a good price on it. Of course, it's still more than I ever thought I would spend on a lens so I'll be getting a second job after school ends so I can replace the money in the account. I have a lens as big as my head!

<--- Suffering from Lens Envy (if only it were the Nikon equivalent!)

Nice! Isn't it great to get a good deal on something like that!? Awesome that you've got the connection!

You'll have fun shooting birdies with that one! Nice and fast. Congrats!

It was quite the deal. The last time any big Canon glass had come in used was a 300mm about 5 years ago (also bought by an employee!)

Ya, I miss working in a camera store sometimes. Well, actually, I really only miss the employee discounts and first dibs on cool used stuff that came in. Of course if camera shop were the only source of income, even the employee discount wouldn't help much on nifty items like that!

Look at that pretty white lens. Very nice. And damn near 12 pounds, a lot of very nice glass.

Well, mine's not quite that white because it was used, but it is still very pretty! But yeah, definitely too heavy to be a "take with you everywhere" lens!

That was pretty much my thought when I saw it come in. Never dreamed I'd be getting it though!

I'm not going to show my husband this post -- he will get lens envy. Me? I wouldn't know what to do with the thing. But you take wonderful photos!!!!

I know all about the lens envy. I've had it over lenses like this for years! :)

Oh, my, what a big lens you have! Seriously, though, congratulations! :) You can probably photograph me from your house with that thing!

Re: If you were a guy I'd say you were compensating for something
This was one of those "I'm never going to own that" lenses. I was shocked when it came in used, and even more shocked when I found out my price as an employee.

So if I were a guy I'd be compensating for something... and you are a guy... and you want this lens... LOL!
