An old funny one

This picture has been taken during a test of the 70-200VR lens. I like the effect... the duck playing with the water. A very simple shot but funny.

85 PC lens

VA3_1217, originally uploaded by gugs.

One of the best lenses ever in the Nikon lineup: the 85mm f2.8 PC (perspective control) lens. This one is the "old" design, it has been recently replaced by a new version, with electric diaphragm control and nano-coating to improve picture quality. Those differences are not enough to select the new design over the old one. The lens can be tilted to increase, reduce or select depth of focus and of the focus area. It can also be shifted to correct perspective. The magnification factor is maximum 2:1. This lens is ideal for product photography.
