Oops

I've just been into Jessops to get a Circular Polariser (yes I know but I need it in a hurry!) and it seems I also came out wth a Sigma 50mm F2.8 DG Macro lens too.

Not quite sure how that happened!

Re: Oops

Yes it's just something that seems to happen.

I avoid shops altogether in case they happen to be selling a 40D.

Re: Oops

oh don't....I asked to try it on a body and I nearly fainted when he picked up the D300.

"Get thee behind me!" I yelled!

Re: Oops

Yep, definitely something that's happened to most of us at one stage or another... but congrats on the new (unexpected) toy!

Re: Oops

LOL And it doesn't only happen with photography either ... More often than not, if I go to the shop to buy bread + milk I walk - nay, stagger - out with maybe 5 carrier bags full of groceries I hadn't realised I needed before I got to the shop

Very refreshing to see that it was not a pair of shoes you accidentally bought!

Re: Oops

I must admit to have a hankering for one of those as well. For table top stuff often a shorter focal length is more use especially on a DX sensor.

Re: Oops

Angela, I can empathise! Went into Jessops yesterday to buy a polariser 72mm and came out with a Sigma 10-20 mm! The lad working there was superb, he opened another lens box to swap over the lens cap for a more effective Sigma cover that operates like the Nikon one. He knocked off money saying I'd get a discount if I ordered online and collected in store. Superb service.

Re: Oops

FROSTBEAR, I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH DISCOUNT JESSOPS GAVE YOU,BUT AT
304 FOR A SIGMA 10 - 20MM LENS IS WAY OVER THE TOP. THIS LENS NOW CAN BE GOT FOR BETWEEN 250 - 280, STILL YOU HAVE MADE A GOOD CHOICE WITH THE LENS, IT IS A CRACKER
