Finding myself in rather tight confines at the Japanese Gardens in Brooklyn when I came across this pleasent scene, I wanted a lens with a field of view wide enough to take in both women, but not all the people around them, and a nice wide aperture to throw the background completely out of focus. The only lens I had in my bag today that would do that, was my 35mm F1.4. An old manual focus lens, it still takes great images now on my D300s, like it did 30 years ago on my old Nikon F3. Boy I can't wait to see the images I get with it when I finally buy a D810.
