I can't believe the bargain that I managed to get either. Normally this baby retails at the £230 mark, but I found a great site just before New Year who were selling it (and no, it's not a fake, a grey import or second hand) for £155!!!!!!!! Needless to say the £75 I saved will be going towards something akin to either a lens for portraits or a 70-300mm lens with VR - but they're £400+... I'll keep saving!
With being at work I've only managed to fire off a couple of shots indoors using the flash so far but I have to say, it's bloody awsome! I can't wait to get out in daylight hours to play properly. The depth of field is fab, and with the VR (Vibration Reduction) you can go a full 2 stops down on your speeds and STILL handhold it, without having to ramp up the ISO to compensate low light situations.
No doubt, when I actually get a chance to play with it properly (and if we get any snow like the load we had before Christmas) then you may just end up seeing a piccie or two.... be prepared! MWAHAHAHAHA!
