I'm non-pro, obviously, and have a D800E which I'm slowly growing into - I come from having fallen for photography with the GF1 and M43rds.

Right now, I have the Nikon 50mm 1.8, Nikon 85mm 1.8 and Sigma 35mm. I chose primes partly to not overwhelm myself with all the options at once, partly for weight, partly for quality/cost.

Background: I use a D800E; for telephotos I have a 70-200/2.8 VR I (good for sports but not landscapes), a 70-200/4 VR (great at many things and smaller/lighter), and a 300/4 AF-S (great quality, near-macro focusing, 400/5.6 with a TC).
