New Year, New Lens


Welcome to my first spotting topic of the year!
Anyway, about a month ago I saved up enough money to buy a beautiful, used, refurbished, $50 Nikkor 70-300mm lens. And I’m happy with it, it works beautifully!


Gear
Camera: Nikon D750
Lens: Nikkor ED 70-300mm f4-f5.6

Different E175, taking off this time




A helicopter landed right in front of me, pretty cool to see it



And finally, some general aviation stuff

Very nice pictures! I love that photo where you caught the Alaska E175 at the perfect moment of touchdown.

Lovely photos! I want to get back spotting soon, but I broke my lens awhile back… I need to get some new lens as well.

That thing is surprisingly good optically for $50.

That is exactly what I thought when I bought it. I got it from a local camera place, and they have incredible prices, especially for lenses
