(really late post) New lenses!

*This post is really late since I bought these months ago but anyways*

I went ahead an Bought myself a few new lenses and I thought I'd share some pictures I took with them.

First off is my new Nikon Nikkor 35mm 1.8

This is a Prime lens so it has no zoom at all it is just 35mm focal length so it is very close to the natural view of the human eye on a nikon DX sensor camera like my D3100. I love this lens, it takes amazingly clear and sharp pictures even in really low light. Like this shot right here....

And it can be combined with a fish eye adapter for some pretty cool effects
having the big aperture capability is awesome for low light
making it the perfect "Bar" lens

Next up is the Nikon Nikkor 50mm 1.4D
Now this is an older lens and unfortunately my camera does not have an auto focus motor built into it (I want to upgrade later on) so I have to use manual focus but thats fine because I mainly bought it for video use in which I use manual focus anyways. For taking pictures of non moving things the manual focus isn't a bad thing.
Shooting wide open at 1.4 makes the background take on this dreamy milky effect.
This was a little store in seoul that sold really detailed and expensive car models
I love how you can play with it and get that nice little sweet spot right where you want it.
I thought this little ferrari garage was really cool.
with the fish eye adapter screwed on

I also bought a nikon Nikkor 55-300mm 4.5-5.6 VR

I will show you pics I have shot with it in a later post because I bought it mainly to cover motorsports events.
