Favorite lens

When you grap your camera and head out for a quick walk what lens do you usually have attached.

When I'm not taking my gear pack I usually use a 18-135 nikor zoom

Where are you walking, down a city street or thru the woods?

It really does make a difference on where I'm heading, but generally these days it's the 100-400L. I do have an 18-105 I use if I'm walking through people, etc.

It's either the Nikkor 300mm F/2.8 or the Nikkor 24-85mm f/2.8-4D AF lens (this lens also has a macro mode of 1:2 real life size). I generally have both of these along for the ride.

I live in a city so I don't walking in one doesn't hold a lot of fasination for me. Anything I would call a walk would have to be in the woods.

I'd say you are in good shape with a zoom lens of at least up to 300mm. It will give you the versatlity if something comes along that's fairly close, or if something like a unique bird is spotted at a bit more of a distance. For me, it's my 100-400mm.

The lens I would preffer to carry would is my Signa 50-500 but its so heave (over 5lbs) its hard to hand hold and get acceptable results. You have to use a tripod or monopod. It is my favorite when working from the blind.

In the woods, my Canon 30D and Canon 400 f5.6L with monopod is slung over my shoulder, and a backup body is ready in my bag with the Canon 70-200 f2.8L. When I REALLY need to be ready for anything, the 70-200 on the second body is around my neck and the 400 over my shoulder.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
