i bought myself this lens on friday. it should arrive this friday. i CANNOT wait! i'm gonna use the shit out of it during sxsw. it was sort of a birthday present to myself, i suppose. i used part of my tax return to buy it and i asked for only money for my birthday. oh yeah, i'll be 26 in 13 days. scary shit. i know that 26 isn't old but it feels old to me.
