got a couple new goodies to add to my gear bag.

First up is my new Minolta 28-85mm f3.5-4.5

Pretty decent lens for the cost ($56 total on ebay)

Decent sharpness. Nice bokeh and killer price. Really just a temporary fill until I can get enough money together to get the 28-75 f2.8 tamron I want.

Test shots coming soon!

I also got an 8gig memory card and a battery/trigger grip.

The trigger grip is my favorite of the new things. I does seem like much at first but it makes a big difference to the over all functionality of the camera. It gives it a nice pro look and makes it balance a little better. Plus with the added trigger makes taking shots in portrait mode is much less awkward then before. Down side is it does make the camera significantly heavier.
