For Christmas one of the presents I received was a new 85mm f/1.8G for my Nikon. It’s actually an FX lens, and while I’m still using the cropped sensor D7000 at the moment, it works great on it. But on the cropped sensor the 85mm ends up being actually a zoom of over 100mm (I think, I haven’t actually done the math). Anyway, today it snowed around the Tokyo area, so I took the chance to head down into the downtown area to get some photos of folks walking around in the snow. I actually had my daughter with me, so I didn’t do quite as much as I might have done, but on the other hand, it made me feel a little more comfortable pointing my camera in all directions. After all, who would tell me to get lost with a cute little 5 year old standing next to me??
Speaking of kids – someone really needs to make a good children’s camera. My daughter has one, but it’s kind of a joke to be honest. It works, but you’re not going to be teaching much of anything with it. Someone should really Kickstart that.
