PatrickP's current gear

Nikon D800E
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f/4G ED VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
Given the current length and weight, might as well just make it f/2.8 and throw in a few more piece of glass to correct the distortion on the wide end...
Close to perfection. Would love a 24-85/2.8 VR for the next update.
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR
Hate the focus breathing (135mm equiv at MFD), otherwise close to perfection...
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G
As good as it gets. Performs well on the D800/E sensor even wide open on the long end.
Superb IQ, wish the AFS motor can be a bit faster...

PatrickP's wish list

Sorted by most recently added.

Other gear:
  • Nikon AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f/2.8G VR Patent already filed by Nikon. The expected true successor to the 17-35/2.8.
  • Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G VR I don't mind the 24-70 going heavier and bigger for having VR
  • Nikon D710 24MP 5fps; 8fps with grip; 1080/60p. I am not the only one who want a D800 body with D600 sensor inside, and up it to 8fps and 1080/60p. Basically a 24MP version of the D700 with video

PatrickP's previous gear

Nikon D700
Much closer to "The Perfect Camera" than the D800.
