Three prime lens set up for D700?
Oct 7, 2010

Lately a lot of discussion on using either primes or zooms? I like many also wonder about using primes over zooms.

A set up I am searching is 20 AFD, 60 Micro, and 85 1.8? not interested in spending a small fortune to get latest and greatest, but have a compact and convient set up that can handle low light? or great as walk around "kit".

Open to sugestions, now primary lens on D700 is my 24 120vr, 1st vr version, and considering new one and looking at 16 35, and putting it with my 70 300vr.

Many differant ways to go, primes hold a special interest for me, I used them more in my film days {MF lenses} were what I used mostly, on F3, FE2, and FM2,{still have FE2}

I'm not the wild go like the devil photographer, I was 15 years ago, now more sedate easy going and laied back and enjoying it more.
D700 main camera, with D200 and D90 as secondary cameras.
So how does my 3 lens "kit" stack up in your mind as everyday shooters?
