Default My New Lens

For well over a year I've been toying with the idea of buying a new lens for my Canon 400D. I'd been keeping an eye on the Canon 70-300mm IS lens, the same as I'd borrowed from my dad to go to Brans Hatch last April, but they were up over 350 and didn't seem to be coming down in any way. A couple of days ago I noticed Canon did a 55-250mm IS (Image Stabilized) lens, which I found for only 169 from a place near Bloomsbury Square, so this afternoon I headed in a bought one.



Below is a pic of it next to the original, 18-55mm lens that came with my 400D.



So, I took a few snaps to compare the zooms of the two. Here's the original lens, zoomed and then wide angle -



Here's the new lens at 300mm and then full unzoomed -



As you can see, a pretty hefty difference! Sure enough, as I guess you would expect, the new lens fully unzoomed is the same as the original when fully zoomed!

While I was testing, next doors dogs came out...



Anyway, now I have to figure how I fit them into my camera bag with everything else. My camcorder may need its own bag now!

It was off at the time and looked a lot neater than my desk...

Now I just need some events at which I can use my new lens Does anyone know are cameras like this allowed at places like Emirates Stadium? I don't recall them searching me when I went last year with just my Ixus.
