I have had my Canon Rebel XT for over 6 months now and the kit lens just isn’t doing it for me anymore. I think the new Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens is gonna be the next one for me. The cost of L glass is expensive, but I see the results from it everyday at work and the results are fantastic. The added IS will make a dramatic difference in my ability to hand hold shots. I am getting tired of blurry images when taking anything inside. The 24-105 should be a great walking around lens. The photographer I work with has the 70-200mm L glass lens and that thing is a beast. We have a few other non-L glass lenses and the difference in the quality is huge.

In case you didn’t know I spent the last week in Florida. I am too tired right now to go into details, but we had a great time. You can see the pictures in my gallery. The joy of peeling has begun.
Work has been pretty hectic over the past few weeks. I am currently doing the ordering for one of our other studios on top of my normal duties, so sufficie it to say I have been busy.
I also started working on a redesign on this site, so hopefully I can get that up sometime soon.
One of the first things I had to new where I work is use a Wacom Tablet. This took me a week or 2 to get used to it, but I will never look back. Working in Adobe Photoshop all day makes a tablet a must, esp. for retouching.
So, I decided it was time to get myself one. I had a $75 off coupon from Dell after the problem I had getting my camera from them. So I went on last night and Dell had the Graphire for $99.95 – $10.00 and then I used my $75 off, which came out to $14.95 with $.93 in tax, free shipping, saved $5.50 there. Which is a great deal, but Wacom is also offering a $15 mail-in rebate. So $.88 for a $99.95 tablet, cant beat it. It has already shipped today and I just ordered it last night.
