Finally coming back to Nikon, would like some comments on lens choices
May 13, 2012


After much deliberation and a financial crisis or two I have finally decided to buy into Nikon again. I have a D800 on order (God knows when it'll arrive), but if the D600 rumors are true, I'll probably buy that camera instead. We'll see.

Just a couple of days ago, I had decided on getting a used 5D mark II, but I decided against it after much hand-wringing...

Anyway, my budget is not large so here are the lenses I've purchased so far:

Sigma 50mm f1.4
Sigma 150mm macro f2.8 (non OS)
Nikkor 16-35mm f4 VR

All three bought for a very reasonable price used.

I'm planning to supplement with the following:

  • Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8VRII (later on, very short on money at the moment)

  • Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 (cheap, sharp and light, getting this lens ASAP)

  • Sigma 85mm f1.4 (considering for a later purchase)

Any thoughts on this setup?


PS: I almost want to destroy my NEX-5n in some violent way now. Can't wait to get some decent equipment again.
