295. Christmas Loss & New Year Gift!

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!!

      I hope that the joy of the results of the new lens will counterbalance the sadness of the loss of te previous. :)

      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.
