    Took a trip to the botanical garden this weekend with the 18-105G. For those that are not familiar, it is a 250 acre designated national landmark botanical garden located in the Bronx. I grew up in the Bronx where it's located, but had not been there since I was a a teenager sneaking in through holes in the fence. This time I willingly paid my $25 dollars. I am a little more honest, have a little more money, and I don't run like I used to. ;) Hope you all enjoy.

    You're making me want to get the 18-105 more and more - oh well, maybe I'll can afford it in a few months :D

    You're in good company there, Gary. I had no idea that the Bronx was home to such a beautiful place. Clearly I need to get out more. :p

    David, I think you get out more than most. :)

    The Bronx has its bright spots. The Bronx Zoo and The New York Botanical Gardens are must see if you find yourself nearby. The Zoo is amazing. I plan on visiting there soon.

    Nice photos! I'm thinking about getting this lens, too, since I sold my kit zoom lens with my 6.

    Thanks Patti. I really like the versatility of this lens. I sold my kit zoom before buying this. If you don't mind the size, you'll love it.
