Nikon 18-200mm lens
The 35mm f/1.8 prime leans is in fact the only one that I own at the moment. Whilst it does a pretty awesome job, I sometimes wish I could own a zoom lens as well, just for the practicality. Whilst the low aperture of the 35mm does wonder for portrait shots/bokeh etc, I find it really challenging to take landscape/scenery pictures with it because of the lack of zoom. I’ve been eyeing at the Nikon 18-200mm lens for a while now because it seems to be the ultimate all-purpose lens out there (you can read a review of this lens at KenRockwell’s website). However, photography, as we all know, is one of the most expensive hobby out there… which is why it is no surprise that the lens alone costs even more than my camera’s body! Oh well, once i land my six-figure pay corporate job and receive my first pay slip, I’ll make sure to get myself this baby hahaha.
Finally! After a long wait, my baby has arrived at my door this morning! You can probably guess what I got myself right? It’s a new Nikon DSLR! This is such a big splurge but I think that It’s all worth it… After all pictures and videos are the easiest way to record your memories, might as well have them in HD Quality! I used to own a Nikon D90 and was familiar with the system so it was an easy choice to pick between Canon and Nikon. I opted for the Nikon D5100 and bought a 35mm f/1.8 lens to go with it. I’ll be looking forward to taking lots of pictures with it :)!
