Portland OR Japanese Garden at 200
Oct 9, 2006

millimeters, that is.

I recently purchased an old 200mm F/4 AI-S Micro-Nikkor lens and decided to challenge myself by attempting to capture the essence of the Portland Japanese Gardens using nothing but that lens. One looks at things differently with such a narrow frame!

This lens is wonderful. Well built, smooth operating, and sharp. Since the D200 meters with AI/AI-S lenses, these are very attractive to purchase. It's my second MF lens, the first being a 24mm F/2.8 AI Nikkor which, at 24mm, puts both my Tokina 12-24 and 18-70 kit lens to shame.

20 images are on my revised website,
