Week 37 …. Ooops I bought another lens …..

img_20161015_113821Last Saturday I popped into Bridgend to get a long awaited haircut so had a bit of time to pop into my excellent local camera shop for a nice chat.

I am not sure if any of you reading this are like me but when I am alone in a camera shop (without the wife) I some how seem to go home with more than I left the house with.

This time it was a mint Nikon 50mm f1.4D.

Now I already have the 50mm f1.8D that I use on my manual focus Nikon slr’s as it has an Aperture ring and also have the 50mm f1.4G afs that I can use on my Dslr’s and also the F100 & F80, but as it does not have the Aperture ring I can only use it in Shutter Priority/Program on my F4s.

So this lens will fit all the Nikon’s I have … so that was my excuse to the wife anyway šŸ˜‰

I already had a roll of Agfa Vista 200 in the F100 so I popped on the new lens and off we went for a nice walk.

The lens performed great to be honest … no problems … focussed quick and was pretty sharp too, I will try it on my D600 to see how sharp it really is.

Here are some of the images ….


Thanks for lookingā€¦..

  2. Sure it was an ooops! But keep in mind, you always have one more lens/camera than you need, but one less than you want! As long as you follow that rule, it’s OK.

    Why are pigs so cute?


  3. Love the pigs. I am also very glad I have no digital rigs as it clearly leads even further down the rabbit hole. As it is, if it doesn’t focus manually I can’t buy it. Not that this rules out many many purchases….
