I added a new lens this week, a Nikon 18-300 Zoom (AF-5 DX Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR to be exact).
Naturally, I had to stick it on my camera and immediately start shooting. The light conditions were not great for it was near dusk and most of my yard was in shadow. However, the birds were active on my feeders so I sat on my steps and took a few shots.
The Chickadee was kind enough to pose. The picture of him, shown here was shot in aperture priority and handheld so it is a little soft, but it shows promise. It shows what the lens is capable of doing.
It is always fun to have a new toy. This seems to be a very good lens and I can't wait to see what it does with a tripod and in a more controlled setting.
One more picture - this is the female Cardinal who kept staring at me today.
More fun to come.
