Yesterday I dropped into the PhotoExpert shop in Delta and asked if they’d seen the new Nikon 24-120 F4 lens yet. Dave checked in the back and suggested he had one just for me 😉 Needless to say I bought it.
Despite the forecast of rain all weekend, it turned out pretty nice. A few very storm-like clouds kept threatening, but for the most part, they stayed away. The same thing happened on Sunday, so over the weekend, I had a few hours to try out the new toy.
I flitted between Surrey City Hall for colour, and Serpentine Fen and Delta to see what was going on. I wasn’t out early on Saturday or Sunday, so most of the wildlife was out feeding somewhere, but the colour at City hall was just fine.
I bought the lens to use at events, so I wasn’t trying it out under the circumstances I’ll use it most. Still, I’m pretty happy with what it’s done so far with landscapes. We’ll see next week how it works at a couple of next week’s events at work.
