Hello, Nikkor 28-70mm f/2.8D AF-S.

I just placed an order for this from my favorite seller.

I was shooting a close-up live musical performance by a friend last weekend at a small venue. I didn’t like having to choose between my 50mm f/1.4 and my 20-35 f/2.8. So I decided to cover that range with one lens — the Nikkor 28-70mm f/2.8 AF-S.

I’m looking forward to its delivery in about a week.

27 August 2022 Update: I should sell this lens. Vahe agrees.

Hello, Mojave.

I upgraded both my Macs from High Sierra (OS X 10.13.3) to Mojave (OS X 10.14) yesterday. Here’s my take.

Night mode: Meh.

Apps have to get user permission to access things like contacts: Yes!

I had to grant various access (half a dozen things so far) so apps would have access to things. Secure by default is the way to go for the operating system!

Screen shot tool: Yes! This is better for me than Greenshot for Mac because it auto-saves the file to my pre-defined location with less clicks. It’s still inferior to Greenshot for Windows — that lets me control whether it captures an area or a window using different hotkeys (saving me mouse actions) and it lets me define an area with two points rather than resizing an existing rectangle. But this still beats Greenshot for Mac and is really good! Best Mojave improvement for me after the security improvement mentioned above.
