Is it possible to be in love with a lens?

I've been waiting on this lens for a while now...it was backordered for eons, but being that I'm a lucky girl, I called last night and my favorite camera shop had it in (and for cheaper than anywhere else!). Yes, I had things I needed to do before I leave for DC. Yes, I needed to get my Father's Day gift together to take to my Dad tonight. Yes, I needed to organize my drycleaning. All those things had to wait, because THIS LENS is something that I've been waiting for...and I'm in love!

I'm also planning to add a couple more lenses to my bag, but I'm saving up and waiting for them to be in stock, too. Soooo fun, yet soooo expensive!

Sweet! Just started reading your blog a week or two ago... I'm waiting on the Canon 50mm f/1.8! Hopefully it'll be here today or tomorrow!

Yum! I am waiting on my own 50mm 1.4 too - I can't wait!

You are going to love it. Or should I say, LUUUUVVVVV it! And once you shoot with that one for a while, you will need to move to the 50 1.2 which is even better than buttah! Seriously!

Ooohhhh! The 1.4! I have the 50mm 1.8 - love it but now I have 1.4 envy. ;)

I love mine! I know, I get all excited too when a new lens comes through my door, to join my camera bag. Pretty soon, I'll decide that I NEED the 1.2...

Is it the 1.4? You are going to LOVE it! I use that one all the time now. Congrats!

Yes, it's possible to fall in love with a lens. The object of my devotion/ My 35-200 mm Taramon lens.

Ooooh, I can't wait to see the new pics! I have a 50mm 1.8 that I love, so I'm positive you will love this one even more!

Hey- show us your bag someday. We need a new one and would love to see what you have!
