♬♫♪♬♫♪ I Beg Your Pardon, I Never Promise You Rose Garden... ♬♫♪♬♫♪
The second day (29 December) after I received the Nikon 1 V1, the sky opened up and we had none stop rain for five solid days! As if Wellington need a good cleansing to welcome 2012!
Today (Tuesday 3rd) the sun came out full broom, the air was crystal clear and snappily cool on this public holiday :)
What better time to test the Nikon 1 V1 at our Wellington Botanic Garden! I knew that roses are in full bloom at the Lady Norwood Rose Garden which is on the left end of the garden.
Beside the V1 with the 10-30 kit zoom, I also took with me the E-P2 with the 14-42 for comparison; the other two lenses are the 1Nikkor 30-110 and the Panasonic 7-14 ultra wide zoom.
The award-winning rose garden has 110 formal beds, each representing a different variety of rose.
It includes newly released roses and traditional favourites.
If you want to test the colour fidelity of your lenses, this is the best place to go; when the roses are in season that is.
