Welcome to my portfolio site including photos, my blog, contact information and social media links

I posted earlier about the uberness that is the AF-S Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 GII ED.  I've used it a number of times over the past couple of months.  I also mentioned it has a zoom lock, but didn't think I would bother.  Well, let me tell you after using this lens for several casual photoshoots, the zoom lock is a nice feature. 

I normally use a BlackRapid camera strap and today while I was doing some street photography I had my 18-200 mounted.  When the lens was zoomed around 35mm and hanging on my hip it constantly extended out to the 200mm all on it's lonely.  It was weird.  And then I remembered, "Oh yes, there is a zoom lock".  I used it and problem solved.

The only problem is you have to remember to switch it off unless you want to shoot only in 18mm.  However after a few minutes I naturally switched it off while I was bringing the camera up.

Bottomline, a nice feature on an already amazing street photography lens.
