new camera & lens
Lens: Sigma 17-70 f2.8-4.5 Camera: K30 
Posted By: Cee Cee, 09-13-2013, 08:11 AM

picked up a new K30 packaged with a sigma 17-70 f2.8-4.5 for AU$650 ( about $600 US ) just fitted the lens & battery, left it on whatever the default settings were and took these in the failing evening light, a orchid that had just opened yesterday, & Bruce .... he always looks grumpy when I shove a camera in his face the first shot with the new sigma lens the others with AT-X Pro 28-70 f2.8

Those are great shots CC, that camera/lens appears to be a wonderful combo. Great upgrade, no matter what Bruce says.

All Bruces are like that, trust me, I know. Like me he will get over it ........ eventually.

Seriously, nice photos and a very handsome cat if I may say so.
