OK, so here’s the thing, a new lens was delivered this afternoon. So I unwrapped it, stuck it on my camera and went out in the garden to try it out. Here is one from the first burst I snatched. I wasn’t really trying and the light was low and what I’d, technically speaking, describe as completely pants. The stolen image, I rather liked. Hope you enjoy it.
Er, the lens? it’s a Nikon 500mm f5.6 PF. I can tell from those first shots that its a bit of a beauty and it handles like a dream. The image is straight from the camera with no adjustments or cropping. I feel like I’m cheating a bit. My trusty 200-500mm is a very good lens indeed and has served me well but this one is… well, a bit ‘special’.
