If you’re looking for some weekend viewing then I’ve got two shows you’ve got to see if you’re a photographer. A few months ago, RC Concepcion and I did a series of photography shows on DTown TV on our favorite lenses. We went over lenses for portraits, landscapes, sports, weddings and overall, just our favorite lenses for what we shoot.
Lenses Change All The Time
Since the show’s release, not too much has changed in the lens market. I did see Nikon released an 18-300 lens for a DX body. If had a DX body, I’d definitely add this as one of my favorite lenses for just walking around. You can’t beat a focal length range like that. Also, a couple of weeks ago I wrote about my change from the Nikon 14-24mm to the 16-35mm lens. But that’s about it.
Enjoy watching and have a great weekend!
Show 1 (Landscapes and Portraits)
Show 2 (Travel, Sports, and Weddings… well kinda)
When making the point about aperture on the Nikkor 28-300 F3.3-5.6. 3.3-5.6 is the maximum aperture not the minimum. Aperture is a ratio of the focal length to the lens diameter. Maximum means the lens wide open, minimum means the lens stopped down all the way. A 50 mm F1 lens would be 50mm wide open. OK?
Thanks, Matt for the lens suggestion! I really appreciated the two shows that you and RC did on those lenses. I have a lot to learn – I’m glad you’re doing D-Town!
