There are a number of reasons. I love books, so I order them from Amazon all the time. Seriously, probably every other week. I have a preferred (or something like that) membership so I don’t have to pay shipping and I get my stuff a little faster. I can find just about any book I want on there. Not only that, but did you know they have a fabulous shoe site: endless.com?
But most of all, I love whatever the feature is that allowed me to request that I be notified as soon as this lens became available. I know some of you who just recently started reading probably don’t realize that I love to take pictures, but I do. However, because I purchased the Nikon D-40 my camera does not have the capability to auto-focus unless the lens has a motor built in (lamest thing ever…and had I known that, I probably would have purchased a Canon, but too late now). My favorite lens (and only one other than the kit lens, which is not my favorite) is my 50 mm f/1.8, however…no auto-focusing capabilities.
So this new lens will mean lots more pictures!!! Yay for me! And it should arrive before I leave for Moab on Friday…which is another post entirely.
