Compact & lightweight 3 LENSES KIT for Nikon FX
Apr 8, 2014

Thinking about the Nikon DF, but coming from micro43, I’m really worried about lens size and weight. The 50mm f1.8 G is going to be a perfect walkaround and low light prime, and probably the 70-200 f4 plus a TC 1.7x is going to cover my telephoto needs with very good IQ.

But, for an standard zoom (looking for an only 3 lenses kit), Nikon 24-85 f3.5-4.5 VR is the best balanced option I’ve found (between Nikon 24-70 f2.8, 24-120 f4 and Sigma 24-105 as the other options I've considered). It’s compact and light, but mixed reviews about quality in the web.

I don't want the big guns f2.8 route, and ready to sacrifice some IQ in order to reduce weight. Another option to keep size down is to get a 24mm f2.8D.......but I'll prefer the flexibility of a zoom.

What do you think?
