Oh god, Rooz, you're selling the 70-200mm?
Good thing you're selling it for more than I'm willing to spend, right? Right? So that way I don't want it...... right?
I just use my 70-200mm F/2.8 VR way too much to consider selling it right now--as a matter of fact, I used it just a few minutes ago. :p
it also scares alot of kids and people in general. this may sound stupid, but with all the portrait commisions i'm doing, if i pull out the 70-200 people get nervus and apprehensive. i whack on the 85 or 50 and people get alot more relaxed. not to mention kids are overawed with the size of the 70-200 and all they wanna do is either hide from it or play with it. they ignore me with the primes on.
weddings and sports, this thing is a no brainer. but for my purposes, its just a classic case of a lens that doesnt fit. not to mention i think within the next 12months this lens will be updated and the resale value of it right now is just unbelievable. i may even be able to sell it for more than i bought it. God Bless Nikon's incompetance at meeting market demand and having their top lens' in short supply. lol
Well reasoned Rooz. A beautiful lens wish I had one but if it doesn't suit then it's just dead money thats not working for you.
More great shots everyone. I really like the road serpentining off to the right and the colour in that ceiling BTuner. Nice cat TNB.
TNB, love the eyes on the cat, very sharp.
Thought I throw in another of the slot canyon pics. I really love the colors down there...
Nikkor 24-70mm @ 24mm
Another very cool shot Stuart thanks for sharing again.
Here's something a bit different, the SA Museum has a Coelacanth on permanent exhibit. In case no-one else was keen on dinosaurs as a kid these were thought extinct for 60 milion years before a live one was caught in 1938. Significant post processing to clone out reflections in the glass case and a touch of sharpening on the original jpeg, 50mm prime, no flash, handheld.
