Took my new/used 180mm f2.8 to the farmers market. The Blueberries are at their peak here in Washington county. Yum!! First time out with this lens so I wanted to see what it would do wide open at f2.8 . D200 1/200-1/500, ISO200

Tasty series, love that lens! A Canon 72mm 500D will fit with hood extended to get
some near macro use out of it. Very versatile chuck of glass. :biggrin:

I've heard about the 500D, now that I know its a good match for the 180mm I'm gonna have to try it out. I love how sharp and contrasty this lens is. Do you have any pics using it on the 180mm?

I think I want this lens....
Its a great deal for a f2.8. I picked this one up on Craigs list for $375.

Great Shots, obviously with a great lens and photgrapher.
Wow, thanks for the kind comment! :smile: -Kent

really nice, congrats!
Thank you! -Kent

awesome
#3 is my fav
great lens, i shuda kept mine
Thanks Randy, I'm also with you on that third pic.
Of course I really wanted the 70-200mm f2.8 but I'm saving up for a 200-400 f4. The 180mm gets me where I need to be in lower light settings and I didn't have to take a big hit in my savings fund. :biggrin:

Those are some luscious images. The Nikon 180/2.8 is a great glass.
Thanks! I agree, I'm really impressed with its image quality. -Kent

Oh just gorgeous!!! I have been lusting this lens, these shots are gorgeous!! :smile:
Why thank you! You should treat yourself to one. Indulge, nobody needs to know :wink:

Great shots!
Thanks Anthony!

ove the flower picture most of all, however

Yes they were! I had Blueberries on Vanilla ice cream last night and again on yogurt today for lunch.:rolleyes: -Kent

Ok showing these photos from this nice lens is tempting me more than I need to be at the moment! I do like the bee shot above, but the blueberries one are very good.
