Hmmm...a sudden sense of passion and desire creeped up and my hands are getting itchy on some new toys. Don't know why but I suddenly feel its time to change my aged (14yrs) Nikkor 80-200 f 2.8 AF-D lens. This lens has served me well...really well. But the new 70-200 f2.8 VR is also a very tempting lens too! A new one costs almost RM6,000!!! Sigh...
Comes with a beautiful lens hood.
Looks awesome coupled with the pro series bodies like this D3.
2 weeks ago, while I was shooting video of a wedding event, a guy took some candid pics of me using a Nikon D70s coupled with a Nikkor 50mm f1.8. The result...awesome pics, superb sharpness!!! I used to have this lens many years back but kinda sold it off thinking that I might not have the need for a fixed 50mm. On a DSLR, this lens gives a decent 75mm (50 x 1.5), great for studio portraiture use. I feel like having this lens back. A new one cost around RM385.
