I'm super excited that my equipment arrived today.

Just had to share.

Thanks for everyone's advice.

Just remember that better gear makes some of it easier but it's the operator of that gear that makes the difference in how well it performs. There is a learning curve to everything important we try to do and one step at a time will get you to your destination.

Re: My equipment arrived

Oh I totally understand.

There will be a big learning curve and lots of frustration I'm sure, but I couldn't let this stuff go by at the price I got it for.

I will never know it all, but the support and information on here makes it a lot easier.

There's a synergy to it. The better you get, the more difference such good equipment makes.

I just took a few pictures of my dog with the 17-55mm.

Just really impressed with the quality.

No, no, nope, NOPE.  Please, post a shot ... after you catch your breath.  Like, next month some time?

Re: My equipment arrived

Ok, these aren't the best shots or composition, but it's better than what I was getting.

My dog is really afraid of the camera, so it's nice to sneak a few shots in.

Really just reading the 7D Mark II thin manual..... so many functions/opportunities.......

The first is from the 17-55 and the next 2 are from the 70-200mm.
