D700 lens line-up - Your personal recommendation?
May 26, 2011

I prefer primes over zooms, I like moving around my subject until I have the right angle. I shoot portraits, kids mostly, indoor photos, outdoor activities, nature but also like creative and atmosphere shots. In particular I love playing with bokeh.
(see selection of shots below)

I love the D700 and my lens line-up is (very) lean and simple:

  • 50mm f/1.4 G

  • 105 mm DC

I shoot raw, do little post-processing in NX2, only use DXO for high ISO and HDR (no need for distortion adjustment with these lenses)

I would like to complement my line-up with a wider-angle prime lens to give me a third and different field of view. What would be your personal recommendation? And why? Thank you!
