Just got a new lens

I’ve been very happy with my small Coolpix B700 camera and I use it for macro (ant on a buttercup) and zoom (peregrines).

But I bought a new lense to fit my old Nikon D5100. So I took a quick trip and tried it and you all get to see the first five shots totally untouched.

  1. Lovely. But you didn’t tell us what size lens you bought?
    Some years back I sold all my film SLR equipment to a specialist second hand shop. I got a reasonable price that also ensured he would make some decent money onselling. He even took the trouble to ring me and tell me about the person who bought it. A uni student studying camera work.
    The included my 70-210mm lens. A great lens, but quite a hunk to carry around.

  2. Nice.
    All the talk about camera compels me to share a link doing the rounds in India today about the PM clicking pix of a set of eight cheetahs reintroduced into India from I think Namibia. He is clicking with the lens cap on. Of course it is a fake. Besides, the fakers seem to have given a Canon cap to a Nikon DLSR. Some of the memes end up being funny, either intentionally or unintentionally. Hope you enjoy the story.


      1. True. Like their human brethren. I believe that population is also endangered, hence cannot be used for seeding elsewhere though apparently the Iranian version is the species that went extinct in India 60-70 years back.
