Nikon D70 @ 320mm, 1/330 sec, f/5.6, ISO 200
You know, there was something about this woman that made her stand out from the crowd, but I can't quite put my finger on it. I think it was her perfume.
As someone correctly noticed the other day, there has been some new numbers appearing on my exif data - the focal length is now capable of exceeding 70mm! When I was in Thailand I plucked up the courage to buy a Nikon 80-400mm VR lens. I was going to buy the Sigma OS equivalent over here, but when I realised I could get it for a little over £600 (as opposed to £1k) I thought it would be crazy not to.
I've had the lens for about 3 weeks now and have been using it quite a lot. It's been really interesting having a whole new type of shot available to me (previously my longest lens was the kit lens at 70mm). The lens is very big (in comparison to my other lenses) and attracts a lot of attention. So much in fact that I've started shooting without the lens hood when I can as this makes the lens look about 8 inches bigger. Although it's a lot bigger than anything I've used before, it's very easy to hold and use, and the VR works wonders.
