Captured with my new Nikkor 70-200 2.8. Paid for with my left arm! I know photography isn't about gear but just sometimes it is ! :laughing::shrug:

Hey thanks so much Glenn, Jacqueline, Casil and Rich. I did a 9 shot exposure bracket on continuous high speed. I had no time to do a test photo so I set the cameras exposure compensation to +0.3
Henrey's camera had a sale on the 70-200 2.8. $400 off the regular price, plus they took another $25 off after price matching Aden Camera's sale! I think they only made $10 profit on the lens. I am happy.
Hey we should have a post thread dedicated to sale prices and good deals members find:clap:

Why thanks Asnow. My son talked me into purchasing this lens and I must say, I am glad he did. It is to my eye, every bit as
sharp as my 50 prime and the DOF it produces is amazing. Thanks again - jimmy

This is my favourite lens in my bag. You will get a lot of enjoyment from this investment. Great shot!

Congrat's on your purchase Jimmy, I know you will get lots of use out of it. Mine was pretty much glued to camera when I first got it, and don't worry, it's only money, they make it everyday. :)
Love the pic. and the PP on it, BTW

Hey thanks Rinkdaddy. I love the lens but I like the 50mm 1.4 also
