Pulling the trigger on new photo gear always gives me a warm fuzzy.
Congrats, hope you have lots of fun with it!

I plan on it. My daughter graduates this June..I'm not ending up with either under exposed blurry pics or ones with so much noise it looks like a snow storm..
 


so you got a flash or convinced the people at the school to turn the lights up?

2.8 will help, but don't get too exicted yet!  Like HK940 said, you are going to need more light or everyone stand real still. Now get a high end body with high ISO to low noise ratio and you can do wonders! When I jumped from an XTi to a 5D, it was like jumping from film to digital.  It is amazing what I can do at 1600 ISO on my 5D or 3200 ISO on my 7D compared to my XTi.  This time last year I was shooting with my XTi at my sons graduationi.  This friday I get to try out the 7D with the 70-200 2.8 at my daughters graduation.
What body are you shooting?

I have a good flash as well..I know it won't be perfect due to the lighting conditions and my seating location..but it will be better then the 18-55mm kit lens I used before!

I have a Pentax K110D.

 


Yesssirr!  Much better!!
