Re: Some analysis

Here's a list of gear that I see bashed on here regularly, not just the 58. Ready?

Df - obviously. 90% of all threads here are about the Df haha.
D800 - left focus points, green tint, files are too big, only the D800e is good etc.
D600 - oil spots
D610 - oils spots
D4 - just not good enough to upgrade from D3s, save your money, etc
35 1.4G - a cheaper Sigma exists therefore this lens is bad
85 1.4G - 85 1.8 is just as good, so save your money, also a Sigma is out there. The 85 1.4G is just for people with too much money
The 50 1.4G - the 50 1.8 is better somehow, plus Sigma, so you know the drill.
35 1.8G - no one know much about it yet, but Sigma, so stay away
24-70 - too big, heavy and expensive. Not good for walking around
All tilt shifts - not as good as Canon
And of course the 58, which again, is brand new, and very few people have owned or tried.

The long lenses that you say are viewed favorably are rarely mentioned on this site because pros of that caliber do not often post here.
