Good for you Greg,

The lens and hood are a wonderful addition to your kit.

Xmas, for me was particularly rewarding as well. Santa decided to leave a Wacom Intuos 5 Tablet under the tree for me.

I hooked it up to the IMac this morning. Lots to learn.

Sigh.....Santa didn't leave me anything photographic under the tree. Just a boat load of sweaters which I do not need. I must have 20 sweaters now and only three lenses and there is no way you can hook a sweater up to a camera or a Mac for that matter.

I've learned my lesson years ago not to count on Santa when it comes to photographic equipment. The closest to it I get is Amazon gift cards...and even that, this year I got none. I'm glad I did not wait and got the Sigma 30mm 4 days before Xmas, right before it went out of stock on Amazon (I had a $50 gift card so the lens cost me $100). It's an OK lens for the price.

Wow, great thinkers and all....I'm headed over to Arlington Camera this evening with my Christmas money to pick up a (medium-size) Wacom Intuos 5(!), the wireless kit for the tablet.....and the 17mm f1.8 that arrived last week..

Definitely way better than most any kit zoom. At $100, it's fantastic.

There's probably about 8-10 days a year it might get cold enough around here that I'd want a sweater. 20 of 'em would definitely be overkill for me.

Hi Greg,

I've got the medium sized one as well. I'll be curious to see how you like it.
It is very feature rich but also somewhat intimidating. I've been on you tube all day looking at tablet tutorials-all of which make using one look super easy until I try to mimic what was covered in the tutorial...

Yes, I watched a 52 minute tutorial on it last night myself. Trying to cut down on all the mouse-clicks. It's hard using the lasso tool and such with the mouse and the pressure-senstive pen should help make some selections/strokes more effective and natural.

There are....tons of configurations you can set up. That radial dial-thing is a mind-bender.
