Moving to FX, start with 28-300?
Apr 24, 2012

It's been some time since I last posted here.

I sold out my D90, 3 DX lenses and couple of filters to gather some cash for the new D800. Now D700 price is the lowest ever and I'm thinking it more than suffices for my hobby.

The quintessential question remains: what glass to start with? I don't shoot for living but am serious about photography. Should I break the bank for the golden pair of 24-70 + 70-200, or just start with the new 28-300? I am mostly into landscapes and nature and hardly shoot in extremely low light. So far most of my pictures were taken during travel but that might change soon as I am considering taking photography classes.
