Just because I bought a fast lens doesn’t mean I don’t want VR (Vibration Reduction AKAIS, VC, etc.) Okay so technically the lens pictures was a gift, but it still applies. I really wish lens manufactures would realize that just because the lens goes to f/1.8 or something doesn’t mean I’ll always be shooting at that, and when I’m using it at f/5.6 I’d like some VR damn it. If Nikon can make an 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 with VR and 11 elements in 8 groups and sell it for for ~$169 CAD, I don’t see why a 35mm f/1.8 with 8 elements in 6 groups for ~$269 CAD can’t have VR .
This is the first photograph that I took that I was proud of. I took it when I was 17 while out photographing billboard while working at Telus Advertising Services for the summer between grades 11 and 12.
It was taken on a Nikon F70, the film however would be impossible to tell, I’ve lost the negative and it was probably Superstore’s house brand because that’s what would have been in my mom’s camera bag when I borrowed it.
