For Christmas I got a new lens for my Canon Rebel Xsi: Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 Telephoto Zoom lens.
To test it out, Jon and I went outside to throw the ball to Cailey.
She could fetch for hours.
But we try to keep it to about 20 minutes. Anything more usually makes her legs wicked stiff and she ends up falling over. It's pretty funny. But also mean. That's why we don't do it (anymore).
A little about the lens:
It is amazing! Obviously I'd prefer to be able to afford the EF 70-200mm f/2.8, but for the dollar, this one's pretty darn great. It has the capability to take action shots that my EF-S 18-55 f/3-5.6 lens couldn't even imagine doing. The zoom is also pretty ridiculous, allowing me to capture my little family running all over our yard from the safe comfort of my front steps. The shots come out sharp regardless of the action or distance of the object.
Some things that aren't great is...I don't know yet. I'm still learning but I think for someone starting out in photography that wants a little more than the starter lens, this is a great purchase. I'm very happy.
