jerseyongreen's picture

Dear Santa,

I've been really, really good this year and taking lots of photos to make people happy & smile. I've even tried to include life's little creatures into my photographic world but can't get a large enough image file once I've zoomed in and cropped.

My Christmas Wish this year is for a Nikon AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm Lens so I can capture every minute detail that life shows me. A gift for all to enjoy. Thanks Santa.

Oh, before I forget, please tell Rudolph that I'll leave out those juicy carrots he likes in the back yard again. Hopefully my photo of him will come out this year.

Love Your BIGGEST Fan

strifear's picture

Dont get me wrong,one lens is a workhorse ..... but there are times when i need that extra reach. Lately i have been taking photos up in trees and you can only reach your hand out so far for that 'zoom'. Please help keep me from hurting myself lol. Anyways always Nikon is my first love.
