Monkeys at Angkor Wat

I decided to spend one more day for a photo walk with a peer photography after finishing my work earlier than planned in Siem Reap. I have been to Angkor Wat for several times, yet I had paid very less attention, if not at all, on monkeys there. My last Friday day visit was different as I was with my Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8. I got some fun with those monkeys and enjoyed shooting them as much as shooting the temple.

I used to dream of a fast and high-performance telephoto zoom lens that normally never comes cheap. However in the last few months I was so much in love with my ultra-wide angle lens that I hardly think of it, if not totally forgot about it. Early this month I learned from a friend of mine that I a Barang has some glasses for sale. He got 2 glasses, one of them was appealing to me due to its affordable price. The AF Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8 D ED, released since 1997. The pitfall of the lens was many fungi existed inside the lens, but luckily now they are likely gone now after I got it serviced.

Last Saturday, I was able to experience it while I was out with two other photo enthusiasts. Considering the price, I have nothing to complaint about its quality and focusing noise (the AF-S with silence motor costs a lot more). Here are some shots I got from the walk.
