My new lenses arrived!
Aug 27, 2011

Woo-hoo! Courtesy of your recommendations, I'm now the proud owner of 2 new Canon Lenses... the 50mm 1.8 and the 55-250 5.6. Youe were right - the difference between these lenses and the 75-300 is amazing, all the more so because I bought these new for way less than the price old, 2nd hand 75 - 300s are going for on Ebay. All very odd. Anyway, we had a 1/2 hr break in the rain today, so I scurried out and took the following. The 3 at 50mm are using the 'nifty fifty'. Now to spend a bit more time learning how to use them better. Big smile!!

One question - when manually focussing the 50-250, there is a whirring noise when as if I'm forcing the focussing motor when I turn the focus ring. Is this usual? The AF / MF switch certainly does something as there is resistance to turning in the 'AF position.
