New camera gear is almost better than bike parts!

Just ordered a few camera goodies because I had some money kicking around.
I got the Canon 70-200 f/4L lens, a few different filters, tripod/monopod
combo, Lightroom 5 and a nice Tamrac bag to fit it all in and tote it around.

I cant wait to get the bike washed when I'm done with work this week and take some pictures!


This is my 6D with the 70-200 and my 25-105 f/4L. I have a few shoots coming up this summer (hopefully one with a girl on my bike ) that I cant wait to shoot.

Anyone else geek out when they get new toys not related to motorcycles?

Mostly just geek out over new video games or ECig stuff... Some of the technology they're putting into them is pretty cool.

Either grab a sword and fight with me, or get in the kitchen and make me a sandwich!

That 70-200 is some damned good glass. I think I probably shot a load in my pants when my D700 body arrived. O definitely geek out over camera stuff.

Nice. That 70-200 is super nice!

I was big into the camera scene for a few years. Had to give it up though when I found out I was having a boy. It sucked but it was very easy money to help pay off most of my debt at the time.

I build hot rods for people, I constantly get cool shit in the mail. Most of which isn't mine

In the end, all you really have is body and mind.

Im thinking about getting either a 7d or 1d mk3 as a sports/fast frame camera.
My gf actually took the lens with her today before i got 10 shots off, I have yet
to use it for my own work. Her pictures came out amazing. The 6D handles light
better than anything I've ever used.

Nice!

I like camera goodies too. That's about the only thing outside of motorcycles that I get excited about.

Holy potato sack... I wish I had the $1000 to drop because thats cheaper than ebay. That will be my next body and I will buy his if its still for sale when I get around to it, if its still available of course.
