Just got myself a new lens in the mail yesterday (gotta love 2-day Amazon Prime shipping, which is usually more like 1 day here). I got a 55mm-250mm telephoto to round out my lens reach.

I have prime lenses that are unable to zoom, and then I have a basic lens that gives me about 2x zoom. With this new one I can get around 5x. It will be much better for any wildlife, spying, and for more unique perspectives.


My camera bag now has 4 different lenses in it. This is becoming an expensive hobby!

My question for you is: What is your most expensive hobby (outside gaming, because we all know that’s a money pit)?


As usual, if you don’t want to talk about about this, then feel free to talk amongst yourselves!
