What are your wishes for the coming Christmas?
A healthy and happy family has always been on top of my list. But if Santa feels generous, I would love to receive these.
1. A new lens for the camera. I am still not sure what lens to get as I am still getting myself familiar with the various lenses out there. For now, these are my picks.
Review from digital-photography-school.com.
The beauty of this type of lens is that it gives you a fast lens, wide enough focal length to be useful in many everyday applications, yet the reach to really zoom in on your subject at the 200mm end of the spectrum. They are also useful for getting some nice blur in the background when shooting a subject - leaving them as the clear focal point.

Description - the biggest of the lenses in terms of size but lighter than the Canon this lens is given 10/10 marks in the areas of Features and Quality of Results.
It has Vibration Reduction built in which eliminates camera shake well. It produces sharp images at all aperture settings along the focal range and is quick and quiet.
The only real downsides of this lens according to the review was it’s cost, weight and size. Apart from that it’s written up as the ultimate 70-200mm lens.
Or this one.
Both are expensive, so if ever, we are considering another brand.
2. A new camera. I know this is a long shot, but I’ll post it anyway.
3. I don’t need this, but I like this one because it comes in orange and purple.
