But the real killer for me is how cheap and how good Nikon slrs are now. The d7100 can be had cheap, its bombproof, massive battery life, superb AF, but most importantly of all, if you are a prime shooter, which I largely am, I am get the 35mm, 50mm and 85mm for next to nothing, all of which are super sharp. What I am currently looking into is what to do for primes in the 28-35 range, but I may just have to accept they dont exist and buy the fuji x100s sucessor which I hope will iron out the problems.

Nikon and canon primes are small and cheap...simply put!

Lack of decent wide angle DX primes was why I left Nikon for Fuji. They still haven't filled that gap sadly.

However, while not a prime, Sigma's new 18-35 f1.8 covers that range and the 35 for an absolute steal at around $700. If you do go back to Nikon, take a good look at one of those
