Our New Lens (Nikon 70-200mm)

By June 7, 2014 Studio News No Comments

Dannie and I recently invested in a new lens, and it arrived a couple days ago. The first thing we did was take it out for a spin on a walk around the neighborhood. The lens is a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 telephoto lens, and though we bought it to photograph people, I couldn’t help but try it out on some of the local wildlife that was out of reach using the fixed focal length lenses.


Our old zoom lens had a little more reach (28-300) and I was always very satisfied with it. But wow, there was no comparison on the sharpness and the speed of this lens. The images of an alligator floating in a pond came out tack sharp with no fringing despite the bright light reflecting off the water around it, and when we spotted a rabbit nibbling on grass in the shade around sunset, the wider aperture let me handhold even at maximum focal length. And even though the lens doesn’t reach quite as far as my old one, it’s so much sharper that I can just zoom on my computer and crop it without loosing image quality.


I can’t wait to try this one out at a wedding or engagement shoot. If an alligator can look this good, I can’t wait to see what it can do with a happy couple.
