Kansas City to Texas & 35mm f/1.8G DX test
Last week it was a great snow here in Missouri. It just so happened that I had to take this road trip to Texas and used the opportunity to test a new lens that I bought, that is the Nikon prime 35mm f/1.8G DX. I wanted to see how it will feel to shoot for couple of days only with one lens, with a prime!
It's a great experience and I recommend it to anyone.
This will force you to flex your creative muscle and figure out ways to make photographs happen without the luxury of a zoom.
This particular lens is very nice, lightweight and pretty sharp. However, I came to realize that I prefer the 50mm f/1.8D more and therefore will return the 35mm. It's something about the perspective and quality that the 50mm offers which I value more!
Anyway, check out this shots from this trip and figure out your opinion on the 35mm f/1.8G DX
