Thank you for the tips guys. It's really not about the money. I could go for a 12-24 or other modern lens. It's just that i'd rather spend the difference on a sturdy tripod with an arca swiss head. I have seen people use 30 year old russian lenses bought for scrap on a D600 with excellent results, i know what works for me.

You mean "14-24"?

Personally, I do not think of cameras as an investment. I´d rather buy expensive glass than expensive cameras (got the 14-24 and the 24-70 before I bought my D800).

But how about a 24-70mm f/2.8? It´s not THAT wide, but since you´ve told us that you do portraits, seems like a good choice!

Best regards
