Purchasing an used D800E
Jul 9, 2014

After shooting Pentax since 1968. I am preparing to buy an used Nikon D800E and, also 2 Nikon lenses 24-120 and 16-35, and fairly soon something in the 200mm range.

I will continue to shoot Pentax, but, I will be, selling my K-5 and all my shorter, below 300mm Pentax glass, keeping only my 300mm F-4 and 560mm F5.6, and K-3. Selling 200 2.8, 60-250 F-4, 70mm 2.4, 50-135mm F2.8 and 16-50 F2.8.

I shoot, practically, exclusively landscapes and wildlife. I intend to use the Nikon for landscapes and the Pentax K-3, 8 FPS and longer reach crop sensor, for wildlife.

Any thoughts on this.
