I did get the 28/1.8G in addition to the lenses you mentioned, to my D600, including the amazingly sharp 85/1.8G and the equally stunning new 80-400 - both miles ahead of my best Pentax lenses.

I am also interested in the 16-35, or something like that ;-)! Will follow this thread with interest!

So you have all the lenses mentioned except for the 16-35?

How would you compare the 50 and the 85? Which do you use more often?

To me the 85 is outstanding, the 50 impressive. Yeah, I do use the 85 far more, although I never planned to do so. And I find I use the little 35 surprisingly often, considering its a DX lens, and I only use the camera in FX mode (prefer cropping afterward).

The 85 has a lovely bokeh, by the way!

Also use it on my V1, with excellent results!
