Best lenses to pair with D610?
Jun 14, 2014


I'm thinking about getting D610 for event and walkaround shooting, but being like more accustomed to the world of DSLR, I'm also probing whether there are suitable lenses for the camera which would not cost me a fortune. I'm interested in you opinion, experiences...

As for the prime, it is, I guess, no brainer - Nikkor 50 f/1.8 (or is the f/1.4 worth the extra cost?).

General f/2.8 zoom (which I'd like to have) is more complicated thing, I guess.

Nikon 24-70mm is rather expensive and has no IS.

Tamron 24-70mm has the OS, but will it perform as good on D610? I'm concerned about the off-center focus points focusing.

Sigma 24-70mm is the most affordable of the three. Also lacks OS and I haven't checked the lens whether the focusing ring moves when shooting etc.
