So I finally got my very first zoom lens, the Nikkor 18-200mm! I have to say, it's quite a novel feeling not having to use my legs as a zoom since all of my other lenses have a fixed focal length. Still trying to decide how much I love it though...I do think it makes me look kinda taller in pictures so that's definitely a plus! But it's not as sharp and obviously with its max aperture range of f/3.5-f/5.6, the low-light performance isn't as good and the bokeh isn't as nice as I am used to with my prime lenses. Plus it's super-heavy compared to my 35mm and 50mm! But it should be fun to travel with. Such wide angles I have never been able to achieve before...I can finally shoot a landscape picture one of these days ^_^.
I always thought Peter Pan collars were too "sweet" for me (plus they totally reminded me of the uniforms I wore in grade school), but I was smitten with this close cousin--a rounded collar that kind of reminds me of flower petals. Unfortunately when I found it on Tobi.com, it was already sold out in my size! I was so desperate for it that I bought it anyways in a larger size. Since it fits me so long and the slit in the back is much more revealing than I anticipated, I usually wear it knotted at the back. A little bulky but oh well, it gets the job done. Too bad I wore it on this particular day to a Wine & Canvas date with my favorite person in the whole world/BFF/BF and got a paint stain on it! Totally worth the fun we had though. It turns out I may have an undiscovered talent in painting LOL. If there are locations in your area I highly recommend it!
