After my false start earlier in the week I am now in possession of a new 18mm F2 lens.

I checked through my pictures looking for the most commonly used focal lengths so I could replace my excellent, but heavy and huge 18-135 zoom lens for everyday carry — especially when backpacking and hiking.

Between this lens and the 35mm F2 lens I took this picture with, I will have most of my bases covered. This lens will work well in churches too — especially for the group pictures I take.

I know, I should have got the tripod out, taken a bracketed focus shot, and dropped the ISO by switching to a slower shutter speed. I’ll just accept this as what I can do with a quick handheld shot taken at my desk.
