Going wide? Two weeks ago I wouldn’t even know what you mean.
Before (since 2015): The Nikon Coolpix L830 point-and-shoot has a 34x Nikkor optical zoom lens, which is a 35mm equivalent of 22.5-765mm.
Now (for the last two weeks): Nikon D5000 has a AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm VR Lens.
So you see, Patti, it seems that I have just acquired your favourite lens. I’d say magically but Crystal is real. The story of my camera is here and I still find it hard to grasp.
Be as it may, I have had my new old camera for exactly two weeks. I simply started using it daily without any tests or lessons.
For this challenge I have selected only images with 18 mm focal length (I had to google this expression and barely knew where to look for this number), the widest I can go.
They were taken in Italy and Slovenia from September 1 to 11 as visited with my guests. I was surprised to see the variety of subjects that I thought this length was good for, but it’s all good for learning. You can follow Crystal’s description of our adventures on her blog, starting with this post.
And now – off I go in search of a lens that would include some zoom as well. I thought I found an interesting one in Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR for the price of 318 Eur but it appears that this one is NOT compatible with D5000. It also appears that no other AF-P lens is good for me but that I need an AF-S lens.
Either that or a Tamron (or Sigma and the like) so I ask you if you would consider getting one in my case, for example a new Tamron 18-200mm F/3,5-6,3 for 210 Eur.
Especially because I know me – I would NOT happily change lenses on my photo hikes and would much prefer to have all in one.
For now, this is what I can do.
