New lens! -EYE CANDY

Check out what I just got!!
It's a NIKKOR AF-S VR 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED It's so heavy, you can feel the legitimacy of it!

These photos were shot with a 50mm prime.

What do you shoot with? One of those Sony P&S/DSLR hybrids

We got it lightly used for a really good price from a friend.

It's nice and hefty! But the focus and zoom are so smooth! I can't wait to use it!! I have a volleyball tournament today, so my mom gets to try to use it, hope she gets some awesome shots of me!

Compensating???

That's the question I get when I pull out my white lenses.

Enjoy the new toy!

Yup...moved to the dark side...as of tomorrow, my D300 ships out and I'll be shooting an EVIL Sony NEX-6. It's at the post office waiting to be picked up tomorrow.

I'm keeping my Nikon lenses and the plan is, either to grab the upcoming (assuming there is one) D300/D7000 replacement, or grabbing another D300/D300s/D7000 when the prices crash after a new camera body is announced.

I decided to try the mirrorless and sell my D300 while I could still get a little out of it. Nikon just officially discontinued the D7000 so rumors have it that means a possible replacement is coming down the pipe. Who knows. I figure in a few months or so, I can get another D300 for a couple hundred less than I sold mine for or a D7000 for not much more.

Interesting, haha! Hows the mirrorless life? You should go for D800!!!


Got to try it out a bit today, I love it! And yes, I can see the moon through it- thank you very much! I had a volleyball tournament so my mom got to have most of the fun!
