New lens

So after shooting for 2 days at last week’s Barista competition I found the gap between my 17-35 and 70-200 quite frustrating. While I could get a nice tight shot of the barista’s face I found most of the wide shots only needed 30mm or so. But when I wanted to get a bit tighter the 17-35 ran out and I had to swap to my other body with the 70-200. What to do? My mate showed me his Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 last week and it seemed to be just what’s needed. This is one of the new Nikon lenses with the funky Nano Crystal Coating that significantly reduces flare and reflection.

I had a similar lens when I had Canon gear – the 24-105 L f4 on the 5D but I never really loved that lens. The images just didn’t pop. Let’s see how this one goes. I got it from Photobuff BTW.
