  3. Awesome! How about those eyes? Hope you guys both had a saliva filter on the lens.

    I think the combo of the noise and motion of the auto focus must just be irresistable

    All I have at the moment to practice taking pictures on are my cats. Here's one from the other day.

    I bought an FCON to try for a couple days, thinking I would probably return it (I didn't think I would use it much, but figured it was worth a try.). The second time I used it, my pet rabbit ran right up and bit the lens! The glass was fine, but I felt too sheepish to try and return the lens now that it has two bunny teeth marks in the plastic!!!
