14 24 and D300 went out today

Today saw a quick hour out with the D300 and my newly aquired 14 24, first impressions are that it takes some getting used to. Its not quite as heavy as my 17 55 and three times lighter than my 70 200vr which after lugging round for a day you need two days off with a bad back.
IQ is excellent and although only used hand held today images look good, tomorrow will go out into the field and take the tripod and see what its like when bolted down.
The one thing i did find that you certainly had to get "close" otherwise you capture everything else 2 miles either side of the subject.
Will post a few on here tomorrow

I managed to get out as well, the first time since yesterday! "The Naked City" or "Everything must Go" taken with 70-300VR the 14-24 can wait a little longer!

No I could not get near the Nikon stand even to ask questions! and the people that were selling them were not giving much discount either the price will drop soon again untill then I will just have to make do with my D300 for a while longer, I did have a good day at focus though I was quite suprised the amount of people that reconised me minus my hair, it used to be wavy. (it waved goodbye a few years ago) Best Wishes Des

Probably that lump that sticks out on your right temple and your funny ears that give you away.
