Impulse Buying

September 2, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’ve been looking to get a new zoom lens for some time. The kit lens that came with my D60 (18-55mm) only has 3x zoom, the same as my old point and shoot (and much less than most). Though this is fine for a lot of situations, I’ve been running into more situations that require zoom (taking pictures of people without creeping them out, the zoo, etc.).

So I just ordered this from Amazon:
The Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR will give me a range of about 3x to 12x zoom, probably more than enough for a while. (The lens I REALLY want has the same range, but better F-stops, so it’s better in low light; it also costs $1700 and weighs 5 lbs. I’ll stick with this one for now.)

As soon as I get it I’ll take a few shots around campus and post them up.
