See my gear acquisition formula


Which is why I’m going to take this opportunity to buy a new lens I’d been wanting and considering, anyway! My wife bought my daughter and myself a trip to Nebraska in March to see and photograph the sandhill cranes. I will probably also get a gimbal head to go with it so I don’t have to handhold the lens that entire time. I’ll be getting either the Tamron 150-600 G2 or the Nikkor 200-500. Never been before, not sure if I’ll be back again, and I’ve been eyeing the lens, anyway means this is the time.
