New lens

With careful hinting, I was given a Tamron 18-250 mm Zoom lens for my Canon Digital Rebel XT. So far I have been impressed with it. It has a massive range for a zoom, and produces some pretty good shots. The bird shown was taken at Lake Merced in San Francisco

The photo was only slightly cropped.

My reasoning for this lens was I kept finding myself switching between the 18-70 mm Zoom I had with the Rebel Xt kit and the 28-105 mm zoom from my Elan IIe. Now I have a lens that covers both areas, and more. I won't stop using my 100-400 mm IS zoom, but it will make a great lens to carry around on short trips.
