About a week ago, I had some time to kill and stopped at Kapiolani Community College. (For no other reason than to turn off my car and conserve gasoline.) :mrgreen: But I had the D700 with me so I decided to take a walk through the cactus garden and find some shots. If you click on the “Pokey” thumbnail –@ left– it will take you to a very small gallery of images.
I have made it a habit to carry the D700 with me every where. As a result: I am learning to love my old prime lenses all over again. My favorite lens recently is the Nikkor AF-D 35mm f/2. All of the images from the cactus garden were made with that lens. With an FX sensor it is just wide enough to get in comfy-close but also a good “70mm tele” in cropped mode. So far, I have not been in a situation where I was terribly upset about my chosen focal range. If Nikon were to update the 35mm f/1.4 AIS to an auto focus version (with AF-D 28mm f/1.4 IQ) –I’d definitely buy one. *fingers crossed!* ;)
