    Ok, so I bought the speedlight with a gift card and cash, so not really a gift, but my wife gave me the Tamron :bowdown:

    I'm still figuring out the SB800, but I'm already amazed at the difference from the pop up flash.

    Here are a couple of shots with the tamron, haven't done anything on a tripod yet.

    I love this lens so far. I want to try the typical water drop shots just to play around, but I can't find the detachable quick release dealie for my el-cheapo tripod :rofl:

    I've been a member of watch fag club for a while :mamoru:
