Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8 – Five of 8ight
A few years ago I figured that if I upgraded my Pentax istDS to a Nikon D200 and obtained some decent lenses that if my pictures were crap then it’s my fault. My thinking is flawed I know, as I’m well aware that the “Greats” of photography can take masterpieces using anything. A roll of film in a shoebox even!
Anyway after a few months I got rid of the Sigma kit lens that the D200 came with and replaced it with the Nikon 17-55mm f2.8 (It’s hardly ever off my camera) Next I purchased the Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 VR lens. It’s built like a tank and in the two years since purchase I haven’t used it as much as I should, especially taking into consideration the fact that it cost an arm and a leg.
To be honest it took some getting used to as did the upgrade from the Pentax and I was disappointed with the results. It is a bit of a steep learning curve but the hard work is beginning to pay off.
