Well I Must Just Tell You...

Hi All,

Well I know that it's been a while coming but my brand spanking new Nikon D50 body arrived a few days ago and a short while ago a new nikon 18/70 lens arrived to partner it.

All very exciting for me, feels like christmas

Stuck the lens on the camera and poked it out of the back door and I must say that the lens handles well, auto focus is quick and quiet and manual focus is a joy to use very positive, the manual focus ring is wider and better positioned than what I saw on the nikon 18/55 lens.

got to go out now till late afternoon but when I return I will be back in the garden to check image quality.

Just had to share my joy with you all

Take care
John

Re: Well I Must Just Tell You...

Great news! That's the combo I started with! That lens is pretty good, v sharp outside! (And actually quite useful for semi-macro shots...it has a pretty close focus distance (32cm I think)).
Have fun and hope to see some shots soon!

Re: Well I Must Just Tell You...

Hi All,

I wan't to thank you all for your kind comments, I must say that I like the combination of the camera and lens it has a nice balance manual focus and zoom controls come to hand nicely
Don't know what happened to the weather this afternoon in london we even had a little rain and it was very dull but I took a few tests shots in the garden and sharpness and resolution I thought were very good

I can't wait for the weekend to get out with the camera, I'm one happy bunny

Take care
John
