For those of you who haven't been following along, I headed out to Monterey this weekend.

Full sets are here and here.

[EDIT] ... Just looked at all the EXIF data and I'm pretty surprised at how many shots were in that 70-200mm range.

Picked up an EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS which pretty much rounds out my EF-S lens collection. I figure it's cheaper than trying to round out my EF lens collection, and I'll most likely keep my camera as a 2nd camera if/when I pick up a full frame DSLR.

Where better to test it out? Drove down to the aquarium on Saturday and avoided swapping out lenses for the most part.

Missed the sea otters last time. This time I caught them at feeding time.

fresh water otter
Cute fresh water otters again.

Now I'm wondering if the vignette effect is the lens or the lighting or my finger or what.


Rest are here.

Verdict? I miss a lot of the wider angle shots, but I have lenses for that. This lens let me push in a lot closer to those cute otters. And it was a lot easier to shoot around the people crowding in.

I also took it to the Hex Rx show on Sunday, but mostly relied on my trusty show lens there.

I think I need to try it on a photo walk.

I got the day off from work.
Instead of sleeping in and lazing around in my underwear, I visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium for the first time.

I got a lot of use out of all three of my main lenses.
Go go macro!

The rest are here.

Extra special thanks to the Monterey Bay Aquarium for an amazing day... I'm a member now, so I'll be back. And to the Blue Moon Restaurant for beachfront dining decadence. No thanks to FedEx.
