I've had a chance to play with my new Nikon D750 and the Nikkor 20mm 1.8G and have to say I REALLY enjoy the performance of this combo! Earlier this week I took the new kit to Stone Mountain State Park.
On to the good stuff... On the way to Stone Mountain, I cruised by this pretty church that had its trees in full bloom.
When I first got up on the rock face, the clouds, while pretty cool to look at, didn't do much for the photos. Then, just as I was trying to figure out the live-view on the D750, my bagged rolled over and my lens hood rolled out and down the mountain! I had literally JUST taken delivery on the 20mm 1.8 and before I knew it I was without a lens hood! I tried to shimmy down and get it, but it stopped on a REALLY steep and slick part of the rock face. I may try to return and retrieve it on a drier day, but for now, the mountain keeps the lens hood.
The next few images are from the top of Stone Mountain as I made my way through the upper portion of the loop trail.
Once I got down to the base of the mountain, I spotted a patch of nice blooms, as well as some ferns getting ready to uncurl. These blooms were REALLY small. The close focus capabilities of the 20mm 1.8G really came in handy!
I was pleased to see all the nice blooms at the homestead near the base of Stone Mountain. You can see the towering Stone Mountain to the upper right of the below image. I moved in for some close up stuff of the trees at the homestead...
I think one of my favorite things about this lens is the shallow depth ability at 20mm. It really is a game changer. While I haven't maximized the potential of the lens, here are a few examples...
