295. Christmas Loss & New Year Gift!

by Milton Jacob January. 22, 2012 2431 views

On Christmas Day my previous lens (Nikkor 55-200mm) fell down and went under the wheels!! :( Somehow like a “Stoic” I accepted the loss and in New Year made a gift to myself with this new Nikkor 55-300mm. Though I had many options like the perfect 18-200/ 28-300 Nikkor, I went for this as the price was less (292 Euro; but I had to spent the major part of the money that I got during Christmas vacation!!). This lens is strong and does what it claims to do! The bokeh is not as sweet as the previous lens, though!!

sad for your old lens!
i think the pictures are good with your new lens..i 've the nikkor 18-200mm and it's very usuful for the wide scale of focal but less sharp than this one i think..what about the bokeh with 4.5 aperture? may be it will be better though i like it as it is in your pictures!*
last one is wonderful!

Oh Milton, what a tragedy. I would have been totally gutted. I am glad you were able to purchase your new lens, and the results are really very lovely, but you will miss the special bokeh of your lost lens.
