I've been teaching my 8 yr old son the basics of photography and taking him out on expeditions with me. Here's a portrait he took of me in the garage with low lighting with this lens. It's one of the best portraits of me I've ever had. We just set up his own flickr account to show off his handiwork from the last few months. Most were shot with my really old 20D, but he's done well enough that I've upgraded him to my old 5D.
