NEW LENS

20170908_181541

One Lens that I didn’t have for my Nikon was a long range zoom Lens.  After looking around for a few day’s I decided to order this Lightdow 420 – 800mm Telephoto Lens that just snap’s on the front of my camera.  It took about a week to get it, so I was anxious to see what this Lens can do.  I got it at a good price, so it’s not real expensive.  I can’t afford those big fancy ones that cost thousands of dollars.  Don’t need those.  I’m not a Pro at this.  It’s a fixed f/stop Lens set at f/8.0.  I can’t change the AP settings at all.  Never the less, I seem to like this, so far.

I can zoom out to 800mm with this for getting close-ups from a distance away.  One thing I did notice about this is that the Lens really is nothing but a “spotting scope” that you can use for target shooting or just plain spotting.  It can be used for any number of thing without pressing the shutter button.  Another thing with this Lens is you absolutely can not shoot without a Tripod support.  The slightest shake will make the Image blur a bit.  I can’t “hand hold” the camera with this Lens on and press the shutter.

I’ll be taking it out “for a walk” more as time goes by, and see how well it really does.
