Last Saturday I popped into Bridgend to get a long awaited haircut so had a bit of time to pop into my excellent local camera shop for a nice chat.
I am not sure if any of you reading this are like me but when I am alone in a camera shop (without the wife) I some how seem to go home with more than I left the house with.
This time it was a mint Nikon 50mm f1.4D.
Now I already have the 50mm f1.8D that I use on my manual focus Nikon slr’s as it has an Aperture ring and also have the 50mm f1.4G afs that I can use on my Dslr’s and also the F100 & F80, but as it does not have the Aperture ring I can only use it in Shutter Priority/Program on my F4s.
So this lens will fit all the Nikon’s I have … so that was my excuse to the wife anyway 😉
I already had a roll of Agfa Vista 200 in the F100 so I popped on the new lens and off we went for a nice walk.
The lens performed great to be honest … no problems … focussed quick and was pretty sharp too, I will try it on my D600 to see how sharp it really is.
Here are some of the images ….
Thanks for looking…..
