Today’s choice of subject is an easy one. In preparation for a trip later this summer, The Boss (aka the wife) has allowed me to fill the one gaping hole in my gear bag.
I made the purchase last week, and this afternoon UPS delivered a suspiciously lens shaped box from B&H Photo. I arrived home anxious for the ceremonial unboxing, and was greeted with my new Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 wide angle lens!
This wide angle fills the hole at that end of my lens kit wonderfully. Combined with my 18-55mm kit and my 70-300mm I have most focal lengths covered. Add to that my fast 50mm and my beloved 100mm macro, and I don’t think I’ll need to purchase another lens for at least a week or two! (kidding honey, kidding!)
We had a beautiful 80 degree day yesterday, but the forecast calls for snow again this weekend. No, I’m not making that up, really. Assuming the weather gives me a chance, I plan on getting this new member of my lens family out for a workout at one of the several scenic locations nearby that I’ve had my eye on.
