If Money Were No Object
Sep 13, 2012

Let me preface by saying I got into photography recently when the Leica M8 was released. I have amassed quite a collection of Leica M lenses. I'm embarresed to say I have invested close to $70k in M lenses. Yes I paid $9k for a Noctilux {don't tell my wife}. I am not and will never put down the Leica. An M10 is in my future this year. That said I have never owned a DSLR. Well I bought the hype and ordered the regular D800 not the E model. Now I need lenses. My question is what are the finest lenses Nikon or other manufactures make that would be appropriate for the D800. The type of photagraphy I enjoy is street, long exposure night sky, portrait, and travel architecture/landscape. I really don't want to carry more than three or four lenses but the ones I buy I want to still be special 40 years from now. If you guys could make some suggestions and what your suggestion may cost it would be greatly appreciated.
