Help Me Decide!
Aug 11, 2014

Okay guys, I need you to help me decide what piece of gear to purchase next. I currently have:

Nikon D810

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art

Nikon 50mm 1.8G (obsolete now that I have the Sigma)

Nikon 85mm 1.8G

...and I am stuck on whether I should get either:

Nikon 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Micro

Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art

Nikon SB-910 Flash

Although the Sigma is a highly rated lens and I enjoy the 35mm focal length, it's pretty close to my 50mm lens and I can usually just take a few steps back.

I don't do too much flash photography, but it is convenient to have a better flash than the pop-up one when I do use flash.

Which leaves me to the 105mm. I will stick mostly to my 85mm for portraits; I mainly am considering this lens for its macro abilities! However, the lens is merely so-so rated on DXOMark and I can usually get pretty good close-up (not quite macro) shots with my Sigma after cropping the hell out of my D810 photos.

What do you guys think? Anyone with experience with these items feel free to chip in your opinions. Should I just save my money?
