Wisteria is a common sight in Japan, but I took today’s photo this past weekend in Napa, California.

I just picked up a Nikon 35mm f/1.8G lens, and this was the first photo I took with it. Let me introduce you to my friends. From left to right…

First we have a Nikkor 18-200mm, which was my first lens and the lens I used 90% of the time during my first six months with my D7000. Now I use it only on rare occasions (when I’m going to be outdoors, don’t want to carry more than one lens, don’t need an ultra wide angle, and don’t plan to be shooting anything in low light). If you are interested in buying this lens, I could part with it for $700 delivered.

Next we have a Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 lens. I love this ultra wide lens and use it all the time.

Second from the right is a Sigma 85mm f/1.4 lens which is my go-to lens for concert photography, indoor sports (when I don’t want the large and heavy 70-200mm), and portraits.

Finally, on the right, we have the big daddy, a 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II lens from Nikon. Great for sports, portraits, macros, and pretty much any photo that doesn’t required a wide angle.
