    Some notes:

    -These were taken in my in-laws living room. Read: horrid background and zero light.

    -I was farting around with an SB-22 flash that came with my cam, but was made for film cameras. Oh, and I have no idea how to use a hotshoe flash.

    -I have zero photography skill, I'm not creative, and I suck.

    :noes:

    I tried this shot about 6 times, but I couldn't get the finger in focus with a wide open aperture. It had potential, too.

    I know this an inexpensive lens, but I was getting frustrated with how often it searched for focus. Seemed way more than the shitty crappy farty 35-70 3.3 I have been using. Maybe it's normal, but with little kids running around and not really posing whatsoever, I had very little time to get some cool shots.

    Anyways, there they are.

    Non-D. The reviews I read said it wouldn't make much of a diff, and honestly, with my lack of skills, it really won't.

    I missed out on a bid (my wireless cut out with 10 seconds left and I'm a sniper) for $96, then I won one a day later for $78 shipped.
