On the plus side, it's relatively cheap as FA Limiteds go!

Nice set, dwb! I really like the lens too but I don't understand how you can shoot close-ups like that at that FL--were you sitting in their laps? For me, even the 77mm is a bit short.

My in-laws aren't nearly so indulgent.

They're quite nice. It's one of my favorite forms of photography, really.
