It’s Here!

Adorama came through with an excellent offer on my old equipment and so now I’m the very happy owner of a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and an L series 24-105mm F4 ISM lens.  I haven’t had a chance to do too much shooting with it and now I’m going to be out of town this weekend and most of next week.  I’ll take it along, but I don’t see much chance to use it…I’ll do my best though.

I doubt there’s much point in reviewing a camera that’s 4 years old already but I’ll give you my initial thoughts:  “Wow”.  “Damnit I wish I’d bought one 4 years ago!”  Stuff like that.

Here’s one of the shots I’ve made with it so far, taken at Houghton’s Pond, part of the Blue Hills Reservation in Milton, MA.

I converted the image to B&W because there just isn’t much color in this neck of the woods at this time of year…

And if you are local to the area (Boston, MA) and are a regular visitor to the Blue Hills, check out this group: Friends of the Blue Hills  They spend a fair amount of time and energy making the Blue Hills the great place that it is.
