New D700 User Need Suggestions for Prime Lenses
Nov 5, 2010


I am moving to Nikon D700. I will get the body next week.

I am a sucker for prime lenses and outstanding image quality. I don't mind weight size or build quality. I like lenses with that has outstanding colors, bokeh and dynamic range. I want to spend 1000 on complete range of lenses. Expensive lenses are not in my price range.

I shoot portraits landscape and macro. I need a wide angle, normal and a short telephoto. I also like 70-200 f4 kinda zoom lens.

Please suggest me outstanding glass Nikon or off brand. I love old lenses as well.

Is manual focus difficult on Nikon d700? In not then what lenses and focal length range is easier to focus manually without a tripod?

Any recommendations for lens rating sites?
