Testing On New Lenses

Managed to test my lastest Nikon 50mm f1.4D lens and Nikon 105mm Micro VR lens during my visit to Big Boys Toys as posted in previous post. I was having refreshment while waiting my colleagues finish their shopping, then I saw Orchid infront of me, so I just simply took some shots on it.

Using 50mm f1.4D lens at f1.4
(Indoor shooting)

I like the bokeh effect, by using the large aperture at f1.4, I manage to snap it in low lighting condition. That's why they called this lens as 'legend', it gives very sharp picture quality and almost no distortion.

Using 105mm F2.8 Mirco VR lens at f5.6
(Indoor shooting)

This micro lens really 'scare' me, I still can go nearer to the Orchid but I wanted to get a nice angle so I have to step backwards to get it. With the VR function I still can get a sharp image at speed 1/15s. I purposely used f5.6 to cut less the bokeh effect.

Conclusion... I'm very satisfied with my lenses. Now I'm hunting my last lens, that is the latest Nikon 10mm-24mm DX Ultra Wide Angle lens. Due to budget constrain, I have to save some money first. Anyway, UAE still don't have the stock, so it's good for me to wait.

My advice... get a cheaper 3rd party lens like I did as beginner, once you really serious into it only get the good one. I was using 3rd party lenses before past 14 years back, now I only got little budget to get the good one for the rest of my life.

Orchid Lor...!!!

There are 3 ways to do so:
1. Super Zoom
2. Large aperture (f2.8 and below)
3. Close up
Good luck!
