I received my new lens last night: the Nikon 60mm f/2.8G ED, a cool macro lens for close-ups!
So a couple hours ago, when my monkeys were in their rooms napping, I got to put the lens on and take it for a test run!
Here are a few of my test shots from around my house.
That’s some mighty creamy bokeh! (“Bokeh” is the area that is out-of-focus.)
Hear Me ROAR!
Just so you have some scale, this wooden lion is very small. You could hold it in your fist and not see it.
Oooh, mama like! I can see the individual hair on his face.
With the close-up of a macro lens and the sharpness of a Nikon, you can almost feel the rough texture of his foot pad!
Overall, I loved the quality of this lens — solid construction, excellent image quality, superb color rendition, everything. The price was decent too! The only thing is, I could use a higher magnification, which I didn’t think I would need. So I may check out the 105mm 2.8!
If you have any suggestions on macros, please let me know. I’d love to hear what you love!
