Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 zoom lens

Here is the most recent addition to my camera bag, a Zoom-Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 lens. This is my first ultra-wide zoom lens, and after just a month on the market, it's getting rave reviews, besting most other ultra-wide zoom lenses on the market and matching or surpassing many wide-angle prime lenses.

The lens is a monster. It weighs a kilogram and the bulbous end of the lens protrudes quite a bit, especially when zoomed out to shorter focal lengths. I’m going to have to be extra careful with this baby to ensure that the glas does not get scratched.

I've taken a few shots with the lens and I'm very pleased with the results so far.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what sorts of things I can capture with this lens.

Yeah, my parents' home is lovely. It's always nice to stay with them.

I'll be back Sunday morning. Wanna have lunch some time during the week?
