Thanks for entering, everyone! Random.org gave me #26, which is Lauri. I have the package all ready to go, so if you’ll contact me Kay@kayotic.nl we can get you your lens and filters asap. I’m sure you and your D90 will get good use out of it! Enjoy it.
When I purchased my loyal Nikon D80, I threw in a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 D lens. Played around with it a little and found out it’s a really neat lens. It makes sharp and contrasty (is that even a word?) photos. It also gives a really smooth bokeh with blurry round highlights and is very light and manageable. Everything a good lens should be.
But at the same time I also found out I’m not really a prime lens kinda gal. Aside from my 85mm portrait lens, I seldom to never use prime lenses and especially not for my food photography. So, right now it’s just collecting dust in my camera bag and that is a total waste of a perfectly good lens. The lens does not deserve this. It did nothing wrong and should be out there, playing with his other prime lens buddies.
So, I figured if I’m not using it, it would be best to make someone else happy with it.
It really is a cutie, isn’t he?
Lens comes with an UV filter and a macro close up lens kit. What’s that? That’s a set of 4 different + filters that you can simply screw onto the front of the lens (you can also combine several of them) turning it from a prime lens into a pretty powerful macro lens, really.
And here’s what you can do with this lens and matching macro filters.
Those filters work magic, don’t they?
And are fun to play around with, especially if you’re into macro photography. Quick shot I got to make of a dragonfly that ended up on my curtains.
If you think you can give my poor, neglected Nikon lens a loving and stable new home, just enter by letting me know what your all-time favorite lens is. Especially if you’re into food photography I’m really interested in what you like shooting with!
