Nikon 1.8G prime lenses kit for pro work? (FX camera)
7 months ago


I'm just doing photography as a hobby for the moment and going to follow photography school in the near future.

A question I have is if you really need a kit with 1.4G lenses when you get started in doing some pro work (ex. 24 1.4G, 35 1.4G, 58 1.4G and 85 1.4G).

Or is it possible to start wit a kit 1.8G lenses? (ex. 28 1.8G, 35 1.8G, 50 1.8G and 85 1.8G).

I know there is a big difference in build quality and price, but is there going to be much difference in Image quality and versatility?

I'm asking this because now I only have the 50mm 1.8G and the 70-200mm f4 VR and I could buy the rest of the 1.8G lenses at once or just one 1.4G lens for the same price at this moment.

Maybe it's also important to mention I will probably never buy a 36Mp camera because I don't think I need all this huge files. I will always try to stay inbetween 16MP and 24MP range.
