32::21 - 26th Avenue

I know a lot of people love the 18-200mm ƒ/3.5-5.6 VR, but for me it's always too fuzzy and I tend to not use it anymore. I took it out this morning and reminded myself why with several shots that were even more fuzzy than this one. I think the problem is the zoom mechanism dragging the focus mechanism when I zoom in and out to recompose after zooming all the way in to fine-focus.

Aaron and I drank coffee on the roof and talked religion, video games and road trips. I shot this with my five year old D70 18-70mm ƒ/3.5-4.5 kit lens.

I took my TS lens out for my 365 shot, but couldn't find anything super duper radical to miniaturize, so instead I settled on this subject that suited the diagonal focal plane.
