My Camera Bag

Published April 23rd, 2012

I have spent the last year or so saving up to buy some new gear. As my main focus on photography is working with people, It was a no brainer but to buy mostly primes with the exception of the Nikon 70-200 2.8vr which is by far, my sharpest and most favourite lens. I find myself picking up my 85mm 1.8d lens just as much these days, although it's a bit loud, the performance is fantastic. A few weeks ago, I got the chance to buy a 28mm 2.8 AIS manual focus lens, I always fancied using manual focus but was worried about sharpness. However I couldn't have been more wrong, this lens is crisp sharp! The build quality is second to none, the focus ring is as smooth as it gets. I was one of the lucky ones as there is not a speck of dust inside, this lens is a beauty and will be in my camera bag for life.
