  1. Was pouring out today so spent a hour or so at the zoos indoor exhibits.
    All these shots taken through glass. were shot with D2H and the Nikon 24-120VR, used the SB800 mounted off camera and connected via SC29 cable. Did this to cut down on glare.

    Hey Mike, great shots. I like all of them. Very well exposed and great color saturation. 8)

    Someone needs to tell Nancy to look at these as a good example of what the 24-120VR can do. :wink:

  7. Thanks Frank, you know my 24-120 gets left in the bag a lot, it is a great multi purpose lens and is very sharp at f8 from 24-90 so using it those circumstance works well. It performs OK at other settings but that is the sweet spot.
