    Still playing with my kit - G1, Nikkors go to Pinnacles

    Fun day at Pinnacles National Monument yesterday, plus a bonus appearance by the moon. Still playing around with my kit, seeing which Nikkors I like on the G1. I did discover that I had basically been using OIS as my replacement for a tripod and lost a shot or two that the kit lens would have eaten up.

    I also have some panos that I am editing.

    So far, of my nikkors, I have found I like the 20, 50 (no shots from that in this set), and 105. However, I was finding the 20 a bit harder to achieve the focus I wanted for landscapes. Up close with that lens is fine.

    Enjoy,

    Doug

    And not to be outdone, one from the kit lens which continues to please:

    Thanks,
    Those colors are pretty much the norm there when the sun comes down. It makes for some spectacular views as you are hiking in the late afternoon.
