Like I mentioned in one of my many Christmas posts, my in-laws got me a new lens as one of my Christmas gifts.  It’s the Canon 55-250mm f/4-5.6 with IS.

I have taken very few pictures since Christmas, and definitely not any that required so much zoom.  So today I decided to test it out.  From inside my apartment of course.  It is wayyyyyyyyyyy too cold (like 14 degrees) to go outside and play.

Looking out our backdoor, this is what you see…


Nothing special.  Trees, Popeyes, and an American Flag.

I decided to zoom in on the flag.


I’m loving it!  Before the most I could do was with my kit lens, which was only up to 55mm. 

Now I can’t wait for a real reason to use it, like a wedding or a trip to the zoo or playing with Ava girl outside.

Photography is so fun :) 

and, of course, now I want more lenses!  It’s addicting!

Great gift! The zoom works perfectly!

WOW!! That is awesome. I am so jealous. I want a new camera so bad. You might have already said before but what kind of Canon do you have? The rebel?
