Play Ball!

Major League Baseball begins regular season play in just over a week. Today’s photo is the view between games of a softball doubleheader last weekend in Ashland. The Lady Raiders won both games.

Normally I’d need to take three or four photos and photomerge them together for a shot like this. However, I used my new (to me, it’s a used lens actually) Nikon 20mm f/2.8 prime lens and was able to capture foul pole to foul pole in a single image. I love this lens for its optics, size, and weight, but I only purchased it because it was part of a package deal with a 50mm f/1.2 lens. I also have a 24mm f/2.8 (and a 14-24mm f/2.8) so I don’t really need both (or all three). Therefore, if you are interested in the 20mm f/2.8 manual focus lens, make me an offer I can’t refuse, and it will be yours. Oh yeah, and if you shoot with a Canon, it also came with a Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter which allows you to use this, or any, Nikon lens on a Canon DSLR. I’ll toss this in at no extra charge.

    I might be interested in the lens, but am trying to avoid spending any money on camera stuff for a few months.
