Going from DX to FX - which lens Nikkor 24-120/4 or 24-70/2.8 or Tamron 24-70/2.8 VC
Jan 26, 2013

I am seeking advice as to which lens I should buy in light of an upgrade to FX (D600) from DX (D90). I currently have a D90 with the kit lens 18-105, 50/1.8D and SB700. I don't plan to sell my D90 at this point.

My main reason for switching to FX is I prefer to do so before I start investing in more lenses. Had I stayed with DX I was planning on buying Sigma 17-50/2.8 and 50-150/2.8.

I shoot mainly family life  (everyday life with 2 small kids and a fair bit of travel). We have a family trip to New Zealand in the near future.

I am leaning towards zooms due to convenience of them. I mainly do photos but do a little bit of video as well. I am looking to upgrade from the kit lens as I like to achieve good subject isolation in my shoots.  I am planning on buying the Nikkor 24-70 used to save a few bucks. I would buy Nikkor 24-120 and Tamron 24-70 new.

Any inputs are welcome including advice on supplemental primes.

Thanks everyone!
