I am a naturally happy person. Things are not what make me happy, too many things clutter my simple life. I don’t need people around to be happy either, but I love my family and friends and I feel much more than happiness being around them, I’m joyful. As it goes, if I get something new it’s not to make myself happy it’s because I know I will enjoy using whatever it is I have received. However, last night I received an early Merry Christmas to me present; the Canon 70-200mm f2.8 USM II lens. I have drooled over this lens for a couple of years and have even had one on my camera, which really increased the feeling of want and need. As a photographer who works with portraits and weddings and large venue concerts this lens is the industry standard and I now own it. To say it makes me happy is an understatement, it makes me ecstatic! It simply proves that good things come to those who wait and I have waited and it’s my time enjoy what this lens can do for my photography.
I have read all there is to read about it, I’ve used it on my camera so I know first-hand what it will do for my craft and how with my skill I can create amazing images. I didn’t make this decision on a whim, I thought it through and had an opportunity that I could not pass up and I bought it.

As I use this lens in the next few weeks I will write up a complete review……for now I am going to go and enjoy it; with a huge smile on my face!
