A timely death after a short illness
In my post from Saturday’s trip to Grand Haven, I noted that the shutter of my old Nikon D50 seemed to be developing an illness. I am happy to report that it has not suffered for long, as it died on Sunday. It will be given a proper burial on Thursday, exchanged for a new Sigma 150-500mm lens, as Sigma is offering $75 off the price of that lens as part of a “cash for clunkers” sales push. The Sigma will be mounted to the new Canon 60D that I will also be picking up on Thursday.
So, in honor of the late, not so great Nikon, here are a few of the last of the photos that it produced.
I have had a love hate relationship with the Nikon, I can’t say that I am sad to see it go. However, it did decide to kick off at an opportune time. I was toying with the idea of purchasing the Sigma lens with a Nikon mount, I am glad that I didn’t. I know that the purchase of the Canon/Sigma camera lens combo sort of contradicts what I wrote in my post about buying on a budget, but that’s the most affordable solution for what I typically photograph in the way that I shoot.
One last photo from the Nikon, what I think is the best photo it has ever produced as far as sharpness and color rendition.
From now on, I’ll have no excuse for crappy photos, other than my own lack of ability. 😉
That’s it for this one, thanks for stopping by!
