I wish I have a 35L to overcome some of my equiptment limitation. Then maybe 24-70L or 24-105L and hopefully the new 5D replace or 1D mark III.  tongue.gif

What sort of Part Time?

Adoi im using a200 only leh.. you 40D +135L already sapu .
Who say I use 40D? You missing 1 zero lah.

Maybe can get a 1.4x converter. Then can become 189mm or 302mm in 35mm equivalent and still f2.8. keke

i'm currently saving up for the Canon 70-200mm f2.8L non IS version...

eating gardenia and milo only...

Wah.. so lucky. Can eat milo. We all no drink. Only Eat Grass.
BTW, if get grey set, can be much cheaper.
Why not get 135mm F2? Cheaper and maybe perform better as well. Downside is no flexibility to zoom.

17.5 an hour tax deducted brows.gif. And that's not Maraysian monies.

Photography gigs are paid here at 1k AUD per session without binding and printing, just picture taking, but of course sitting in church and being the only muslim is bound to be uncomfortable.

wow.. that's very lucrative man..

nowadays, we all here do "shoot" for free ones.

I tried the 16-85 IS before. Didn't really like it.

Not really much longer than the kitlens for the price and performance is only so-so.

sell.. sell.. sell..

Hmm.. I wonder how come I'm still keeping my kitlens.
perhaps for the 18mm wide angle over my 24mm


Added on May 15, 2008, 8:15 pm35mm L = USD 1.7K only Mah..

he can afford I'm sure.
