New Toy


I have a new (to me) toy. I freely admit I'm shallow; or perhaps easily pleased - but this really makes me smile.

In these dim light days I was getting more than a little frustrated with the quality of pictures from the lens I had; what I needed was a cheap and cheerful (but very useful) 50mm f1.8 lens - a lens which makes full use of every scrap of light out there.

The downside? Well, it's not self focussing - and it's taking a little getting used to...

rocking the 50mm



Slowly training the eye into seeing the difference between OK focus to sharp focus - which gets harder the tireder I am.

I'm enjoying the opportunity to take decent shots in these dark days, and have a renewed interest in documenting our days.

Be prepared to forgive some blurry images though!

  1. Oh my, Nikons are my favorite. This lens looks spectacular! Enjoy!

  2. It has come in very useful these last few weeks!
