Perfect present for new parents
Feb 16, 2011

I'm normally an oly shooter, but I wanted to share something that I figured this crowd would appreciate.

Two of my very good friends had a son this year. (Papa bear has a d300s and an 18-200) I had no idea what to get them that would get outgrown, discarded, unnecessary, etc.

I ended up gifting them a 35mm 1.8. They put it on the camera same day and haven't taken it off since (8 months later)

They're both thrilled about the lens and pictures it produces compared to when they were trying to use the 18-200 indoors.

Kinda pricey... but a great gift if you're scratching your head as to what to get new parents.

My two cents.
