New Toy!

I'm picking up a new toy tomorrow. I found an AMAZING deal on a used macro lens that I have been wanting forever. I planned on getting this new later this summer but happened to check craigslist and noticed a new "photo and video" section. It piqued my curiosity and lo and behold, the macro lens was the first listing! I replied back the SECOND I saw it not thinking for a chance that I would end up with it. The seller wrote me back and told me he had an overwhelming number of replies but I was the first one! I feel like I won the lottery! The lens is practically half off.

FYI- a macro is used for close-up photography. I could take a photo of the head of a screw and fill the entire frame of the picture. They're so amazing. Perfect for ring shots and tiny baby fingers and toes! Too bad the centipede wasn't around a few days later... I could have gotten pictures of its beatty little eyes!

OF COURSE I will post pics once I get to play around with it!
