Primes or zooms for a D600?
Nov 19, 2012

I plan on switching from a Cannon 40D with a small selection of lenses to a D600 given that the 6D will not allow me to use my current lens set up. i will soon welcome a new addition to the family and want the best set up for both stills and video. From experience I do not get on with mid-range zooms. I get lazy and they do not provide good bokeh  , which I need  for portraits.  The 50 1,8 despite beng a cheap lens did the job as a portrait lens on the 40d cropped sensor.  My dilemma like a lot of threads is what lens set up works best. I am contemplating the following set up ...16-35 VR, 50 F1.4, and either the 85 1.8G or the soon to arrive 70-200f4 VR. Do I need the 50mm at all or would a set of f1.8-2.8 primes at the wide end work best? How good will the 70-200 be for portraits? I shoot mostly landscapes. S
