New Nikon Lens Ordered

I just ordered a new Nikon lens; it is the 50mm f/1.4 and I cannot wait to receive it!

I have heard a lot of good things about this lens. The best feature of this lens is the ability to make photographs in available light. The fast f/1.4 aperture allows available light to create an image where no other lens will work. I cannot wait to try this lens out! I plan on using it for some wedding applications, portraits, and stock subjects. The reviews tout the usefulness as well as the versatility of this lens.

I know from firsthand experience that Nikon makes great glass. I never have to worry if my equipment is good enough. Nikon flat out makes excellent glass and I won’t buy anything else. I realize there are plenty of other lens manufacturers out there, but I am a devoted Nikon fan and will not apologize for this. Nikon is my preferred choice. I know that Canon and Olympus make excellent products, too, but I will stick with Nikon because I believe no one can beat their product line for what I am doing in my photography.

I expect to receive delivery of my new 50mm f/1.4 mm lens fairly soon and I am getting impatient already!

    Bob, I have the lens and love it. I do not use it often and when I do it is for portraits because I love the depth of field I get with the 1.4. I have no doupt you will like the lens very much.

    About to head to Elk country for a chance at some photos. I hope I have luck but not the experience we had last August.

      Thank you for the feedback on the lens, Brad. I have heard some great things before and you just confirmed what I’ve heard. I imagine I will not use this lens a whole lot either. After all, I do prefer photographing wildlife and sports mostly.

      I hope you have a great time up on the elk range! I am hoping to get up for a couple days next week with my son, James. Will Shane be with you on your trip? My parents told me that four calves were hanging out in our yard a couple weeks ago.

      Have a great time in Elk County. I hope to run into you sometime up there again.
