Big lens overload at Nikon’s PMA booth

Alright I admit that I am a Canon guy (I got three of their cams and a bunch of lenses), so walking into the Nikon booth at the PMA show in Las Vegas felt a bit weird.  But any trepidation was washed away when I saw their demonstration setup of several of the company’s newest super telephoto lenses.

Las Vegas (NV) – Alright I admit that I am a Canon guy (I got three of their cams and a bunch of lenses), so walking into the Nikon booth at the PMA show in Las Vegas felt a bit weird.  But any trepidation was washed away when I saw their demonstration setup of several of the company’s newest super telephoto lenses.  See I like big lenses... I'm guessing it could be my Asian heritage!

These suckers are big and were very capable of zooming into the far away JVC booth where scantily clad women were doing a tech version of the famous game show “Wheel of Fortune”.  The lenses were continuously busy as convention attendees constantly peered through the lenses.  One funny comment we overheard was, “I can almost see through her dress” as he aimed the camera at the JVC girls.  A nearby person quipped back, “That feature will come in next year’s model”.
