SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hehe... do you think that title means I'm excited???

Do you???

We've been researching lenses for the camera for a very long time. We really need a really good lens for shooting hockey games. We have a Canon 20D camera and every professional we've talked to (believe me, we hit up every professional photographer we see at games, tournaments, etc.) has recommended the Canon Zoom Telephoto EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS Image Stabilizer USM Autofocus Lens hands down. When you go to websites and read the reviews, everyone gives this lens very high marks. Usually 5 out of 5 stars and no less than 60 reviews per site. Biggest problem is the price tag that comes with it. Sooo after much discussion in our house, I am getting the lens for hubby as part of last Christmas (for the wide angle lens I got him and he ended up returning), his birthday last week and part of this Christmas. I just ordered it and hope to have during the week next week. That means he'll only have to shoot the game this weekend with the old lens. I'm sooooo excited about the new lens. I can't wait to see the photos and will be sure to share them here.

I can't believe our first game is tomorrow. I'm the team manager again this year and I must say that I'm happy that I've gotten a really good response from the parents. I've already got a volunteer to help me with shots on goal and have had two other mothers to help out with stuff when needed. GO KODIAK MIDGET 16U!

I know, exactly how much are you excited. My husband is a photographer and recently we bought that same lens and his hands ware shaking when he first touched it. :)
The photos are great, you'll see.
