Wow, geez, I missed this. I'm so sorry!

 

I ended up grabbing the newer Nikon AF-P 70-300mm (lightly pre-owned). In the past 3-4 weeks I have found the over-200 range useful a few times and the autofocus is lightning-fast on that thing. Unfortunately manual focus is tougher for me because I physically can't see the fine changes in focus through the viewfinder. Shake is tough way out at that range though. After a big trip in a few months (where I need to travel light), my next investment will be a tripod.

 

Most of the time though, I've been using the 18-55 kit lens as a daily driver.

Image above was with the 70-300 at 98. Nowhere near the end of the range but that quality has been consistent for pretty much 95% of the range, so I'm satisfied as a hobbyist.

This was one of several I took of that well-known DCA restaurant's tower,

being slowly devoured, by all those "Halloween inspired" lights.

Here's the first view we saw of the Millennium Falcon, when we toured through Black Spire Outpost, on our first day in Disneyland a couple of weeks ago. Really breathtaking to see it, truth! We later rode Smuggler's Run (twice) and just enjoyed the whole atmosphere of the place. And Oga's Cantina? Well.... yeah!

^ Nice looking beers, there!

 

Here's a shot of the big fire pit, just outside Knott's Berry Farm (and beside Ghostrider's lift hill) & Marketplace.

Some pics uploaded from our trip to Germany this summer... The first sets I have completed are just Cologne and Phantasialand. Other sets coming soon.

I posted this one in the Cirque du Soleil thread. But I like how somehow, I got the focus right, on the tent, instead of (usually with this camera) the foreground trees, etc. Good on me!

 

By the way, that large imposing stadium behind the Cirque tent, stands in for S.T.A.R. Labs in the tv series The Flash. As does the rest of the city, especially it's non-descript alleyways. Also for the soon-to-be-ending ARROW, too.

Took a photo of our light "display" on the front porch, a few evenings ago. A mish-mash of lights,

but surrounded by all the darkness, it looks like a cool little Holiday Oasis to stop at and enjoy. IMhO.

I just took this shot, and was surprised how detailed I got the focus on the moon, there! I didn't downsize the photo, so you can zoom in and see how detailed that moon is, lol!

^ Almost. It was for a roast chicken. Actually it was for

a "slow cooked" chicken in the slow cooker. Turned out really good.

 

The Jelly Belly jar and the bowl of mini mandarin oranges, were not part of this recipe, LOL!
