The entirety of my thoughtful ignorance is recorded here.

From The Ashes, A Phoenix Rises

I pulled the trigger.

I am now the proud new parent of a brand spanking new D750, Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC UWA, battery grip and a Hoodeye eyecup. 

I can't tell you how bittersweet I feel. Some odd mix of the feeling you first get when you start dating someone for the first time with the feeling you get when summer camp ends and you have to say goodbye to all your friends. 

But there's no looking back now. I've already started putting it through the paces and I can tell you the Tamron lens is insane. I've never shot with such a sharp, crisp and bright UWA lens before.

It's the beginning of a beautiful marriage, worth $4k easy. Except this time, I'm buying a Tile to tag my baby. She ain't going nowhere.

Stay tuned.
