I just purchased a 18-35mm f/1:8 Sigma lens to complement my 50mm f/1:8 Nikkor lens. I was looking for something fast and sharp with a wide aperture, and although I had originally planned on getting another prime, this lens seems to check off everything on my list of wants. I’m excited to try it out over the next few months, and to learn how to shoot well with this particular lens. In the meantime, I thought I’d share some of the first photos that I’ve taken with it. I must say, I had a little photographer moment when I saw that bokeh!
I recently purchased a new lens recommended by Chris at Photo Central… to be specific, an AF-S Nikkor 50 mm f/1.8G. I’m still fairly new to SLR photography, and to the idea of working with different lenses, so I can’t really get into the technicalities of it (you’ll have to read here for product details). However, I’ve been putting it through the paces and I am really, really satisfied with it.
At first, it took a while to get used to working with a prime lens (it frames things so differently and I don’t have the option of zooming in and out). But once I got used to that, I managed to take some photos that I’m quite proud of. I’ve tried it on landscapes, objects, portraits and it works beautifully for all. If your looking for a new lens, I would highly recommend this one!
