How to travel with gear


Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G

First off, I must say that if you have something in focus, even at infinity, it’s incredibly sharp... and I’m talking about using it at f/1.4 (there are other cheaper options if you don’t need that shallow depth of field, or that fast of a lens... or just plain don’t want to deplete your savings to get your greasy little fingers all over it)

I was quite impressed, as I should be for the hefty price, and though I’ve noticed it’s a little sluggish at focusing, especially in low light, it's extremely accurate. I would definitely have this in my bag as one of my first lenses if I had to buy everything from scratch.

Fast optics, sharp optics, amazing photos. Get really close, like any wide angle, to really make it shine.


Drawbacks:

  1. Pricey
  2. Sluggish AF
  3. No aperture ring for older film bodies.
