Re: 7100 - What prime lenses do you use?

I fairly regularly use the 50mm f1.4 Nikkor, the 85mm f2 Nikkor, the 105mm f1.8 Nikkor, the 180mm f2.8 Nikkor, and the 500mm f8 mirror reflex Nikkor. These are all manual focus, but in that I manually focused them on film cameras for years, I have no issue with manually focusing them on the D7100. And it makes following focus quite easy.

And yes, they all have a crop factor of 1.5x, so the 180 is effectively a 270mm f2.8 anf the 105 is effectively a 157mm f1.8. And the 50 is, yes, effectively a 75.

But what crop factor giveth it takes away -- none of my lovely Nikkor wideangles are wideangle anymore!
