  • Leonard, Thanks a lot for your feedback. Yes, I certainly have outgrown my childhood, but no, the point isn't 'what do I buy next'. I'm just in the process of upgrading to FF, and since I plan to...
  • Hi, I found an offer for a Nikon EM combined with a Vivitar 135mm/2,8. I hate to ask stupid questions, but can I use this lens on a D610? :-) If so, how does it compare to the Nikkor 135/2.8...

  • Hi Dino,Yes, that's quite amazing. Although the max setting might be way too much for my taste. BTW: What do you mean by 'dodge in the middle for a milder effect'?This might be of minor relevance,...

    Thanks, Luke!Great compilation, very helpful. And a lot of food for thought. :-)Apropos 50mm: I make extensive use of the Nikon 35 f/1.8 when shooting kids with my D90 (1.5 crop), in other words I...
  • Rservello,Thanks a lot! :-)I'm of the same opinion, I prefer buying two or three lenses of high quality to building up a huge arsenal of mediocre lenses... But before I spend a great deal of money...
  • Replied in 80-200 f2.8
    Stacey,Thanks for your input. I'm sorry to say that I'm not very enthusiastic about zoom lenses. And what's more, the 80 - 200 f/2.8 is HUGE...PS. I hope I didn't disturb your private conversation?...

  • Dodi,MANY thanks for your feedback, it has been of great help to me!Now I've got appetite for the 105 f/2.5! The more so as these lenses should be available at reasonable prices.The Zeiss 100/2 is...

  • Hugo,Many thanks for your feedback!Is there a huge difference between the 105/2.5 and the 105/2.8?

    After using a D90 for more than five years I finally made the switchover to full frame - and I have absolutely no regrets about picking the D610. :-) But having an FX body is only half the story,...

  • Frederick, I agree with you, equipment is overrated. This is why I try to reduce to the max: Apart from the D90 which accompanies me for more than 5 years now I never bought a DSLR. And with regard...
  • Yep, you're absolutely right... I've already realized my mistake: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53156982
