I call her Zilla

by Sigrid Strohschneider-Laue July. 06, 2018 2216 views

I got a Nikon D 750 and she is a girl! She is huge and the sister of Godzilla. My husband either loves me very much or he wishs me far away, out of the house - hoping, that I will become totally absorbed by something else but him. He also bought a gigantic lens, which seemed to be the dream of every photographer. Must have been the best of the best, because we would have needed a trailer for the car, a cage and a muzzle for the beast inside. Sadly the shop assistant was a complete moron. He didn't have any clue, what lens will be the best for a full frame camera! I'm glad that Tom advised us at the same day to give it back. Ok, now I have just a tiny normal lens without some special features and I'm happy too. I'm so overwhelmed, with all these features of Zilla, that I don't care about the lens. We will buy what we want, need or can pay for, when we master the camera itself. First things first!

Ok, I took already five (5, V) pictures. Now I have to catch my breath. Everything is different and nevertheless the same, because it's me, who takes the pictures.

Mrs. Hopper had to play photo model. Since two days she was hiding in our living room. Today my husband caught her, when she tried to crawl under my desk. After I let her pay for two days of Bed without Breakfast, Roland gave her a free ride to the balcony. Meanwhile she is happily munching down the salad and herbs of our neighbors. That is the problem: if you share a tiny balcony, one will add the flowers, the other the bugs.

Kool shots! I wonder what he's thinking.....(((grin)))
I have the same camera & really am loving it!
I have two lenses, so far: 24-120-mm Nikon zoom & a 5o-mm Nikon prime.
Pretty happy with both of them!

Excellent phots especially #2 the way you played with the light. You have one of the lenses so far. Nifty fifty rocks! May I suggest a 28-300 fx for your next lens. It a sweet lens and you can find them second hand for half the price. Just don't go asking the moron who sold you the camera about it.

Thanks! blush
I had already a closer look at some lenses in the flagship store today. The shop assistant put two lenses on the desk in front of me. I took one and for a closer look - if it would be a 28-300 - and this "wannabe macho master of the universe" said to me: "There is nothing to see, it has no nice patterns!" I almost ripped of his head. He needed a second hit over his dumb head, because he ignored me – the customer - and began to “inform” my husband instead. Did he actually believed it would be always be the man, who has to be informed, if a woman ask for something in a shop? Some Austrian males become more and more "1933-1945" lately. At least he became after the beheading polite. In the end I will ask all of you on Photoblog, and read all the information I can get. But I will possibly do as you suggested: Second hand will be a good option - especially, if I have to deal in every shop with incompetent "wannabe Pashas of the universe".
