    We're picking up my daughter and her husband at the airport in a few hours. This will be the first time I get to see our granddaughter 'live' for the first time.

    Native lens with AF, just to give you a good chance to get any pictures while being excited undoubtedly. Must be a great thing to look out for, congrats on the occasion!

    Thanks Mus. She is something else if I do say so myself. She is just now getting to be as big as my kids were when they were born.

    First shot was my native 28mm f2, second was the micro nikkor 55 2.8. Non-moving babies aren't a problem for legacy glass. Still haven't tried my TAP out yet.

    It's going to be real tough when she goes back home to Japan.
