Yesterday I succumbed to the special that Ted’s had on the cheap Nikon 70-300 long zoom. Normally $300, this is not at all a professional lens. However, it does have quite respectable Nikon optics and for the reduced price of $200 it was just too tempting.
I’ve already pointed it at the moon, and here is an un-cropped frame. It certainly brings things close, and would have been very useful during the recent lunar eclipse.
I’ll be back here to add more about this lens when I’ve had a bit of a play with it.
