A very nice surprise : The Nikkor 70-200 2.8 VRII

Today I am very happy as my wife decided surprised me with giving me a brand new Nikkor 70-200 2.8 lens, she knew that I had been yearning for this lens for a very long time. I’ve only used it for a couple of hours but my oh my what a fantastic lens this is!.

Sharp, blazingly fast autofocus and a fantastic vibration reduction system (the VRII), I never imagined being able to shoot at 200mm handheld at 1/50s.

Here are a couple of test shots from today (the first one being of my awesome wife).

Street photography

For anyone into photography India is a very good place to shoot. People are generally very friendly and there are incredibly much of interest to see (and capture).
