Great shots! I'm going through a series of what lens set up do I go to? primes or zooms?

You using the 24 on DX gives you a 35 or 36 field of view, and on my D700 I have thought of the 35 1.4 as a "lone wolf" approach, use one super prime, and run with it or get the zooms again.

I have sold a number of lenses, and now just trying to figure out whats best for me?

One daring set up I have thought of is the 35 1.4 and new 85 1.8G and forgo all zooms?
But I do like what you did here.


I did just that and sold my medium range zooms. I think you may use a great prime like the 24 or the 35mm f1.4 G alone for almost everything.

I got in my bag a 24mm f1.4G, the 85mm f1.4 G and the 70-200 f2.8 VRII and a TC converter.
Maybe later a macro lens like a Zeiss 100mm ZF2 ...
