new d700, what lense
Oct 10, 2009

Hi

I just bought a new d700. I am going to buy a 24-70 2.8 down the track (5-6 months) when I have a little more money and am travelling oversease (too expensive in aus, around $aus2,600). Wanted to know what kind lense you guys would recommend for walking around purposes in the mean time.

Probably will be shooting street and and some nude/portrait stuff.

I want to keep the lense as well after I purchase the 24-70, so not necessarily looking for something of lower quality to get rid of later. I was considering a 50mm 1.4 . Can get it for around $aus380. Any other suggestions? How about the zeiss lenses (I know they do not have AF, but is that much of an issue)? How much better quality are their lenses than the nikons?

thank you in advance.
