The Canon 28-135 1:3.5-5.6 IS from Laanba Lens Co Inc.

Did your lowly and humble photographic servant REALLY need this SWEET Canon lens? Not really. It's a range that I have covered with several others. But what I DID NOT have was a lens with such a great savings or from such a prominent source!!

My dear, close, personal friend Laurie Ballesteros was talking about upgrading her camera body from her well used XT to a 50D. Nice jump. But I talked her into getting the KIT and selling me the lens at a great savings. And..SHE DID.

So whyyyy did I want this lens so badly?

Because with any luck, now that she has TOUCHED it (and included some sweet flickr and Texas swag) I can get some of her cooties and take photos nearly as good as hers. I hardly ever tell her how talented I think she is because I like to keep my friends even more humble than myself. I razz her terribly and she takes it very well. (She even has reason to block me forever, but she is fiercely loyal once she befriends you and will even get you a sweet deal on a lens.)

If you want to see what I aspire to go check her out, especially her plastic stuff that makes me so jealous I could just spit.

  1. The advantage of not having kids is you can treat your camera like you favorite child and buy it lots of toys.

  2. Who are you and what have you done with Jeff?

  3. Jeff will be back soon. He's off licking more arse somewhere else, probably to get 5 bucks off a new pannini grill
