The early morning light was very appealing yesterday. Another with the 28-50mm f3.5.
A note on this lens. Although I think it has nice color and contrast output, I'm not crazy about the working distance. It doesn't lock focus anywhere near as close as my 24mm f2.8, and I would assume the 28mm f2.8, both of which has the CRC attribute. It does have a gimmicky micro setting, but that's only good in a short range.
Phillip said "I'm playing the "28 f/2.8 + 50 f/1.2 vs 35 f/1.4" game" to Matt and I think I'm doing the same thing, only with the 28-50mm.
One other thing, It doesn't offer that much difference in FL range so if you have either the 28 or the 50 you can adjust by a step in either direction just as easy. I think I'm going to sell mine and pick up either the 28mm f2 or 2.8, or perhaps the 35mm f1.4.
Just my 2 cents worth.
Leighton, that's a really fantastic photograph! Marvelous composition and very nice colors!
I'm not too fond of Nikon's old focusing-mechanism on some of the zooms - my 35-135/3.5-4.5 has a really nice Micro/Macro-setting too, but I can't focus closer than 1.5 meters (5ft) in the standard mode. This rules out this lens for daily use.
I really like my 28/2's and the 35/1.4 and from what I've seen so far the 28/2.8 Ais is even better. Any of the 28's might be a better walkaround-companion for the 50-135 than the fast 35.
Thank you Georg, that means a lot coming from you.
Yea, I think I'm gonna let this zoom go, but NEVER my beloved 50-135mm! But now I'm stuck on which FL would suit my style the best. Didn't someone on here say "kit building is forever"!
