Re: 35mm f2.0 &D700?

I'm not against the new 24 120, I have the current 24 120 vr, which I feel is very satisfactory, and the diff. in price versus improved quality not worth it ! with this great little prime, as a alternative to the zoom.

My bag right now is 24 120 vr, 35 2.0, 28 105 {macro capability} but this will get removed and sb400 flash oh yes, a D700.
Id like a macro capable lens, but most time just dead weight to haul around.

I won't get rid of any of a total 15 lenses, and 6 Nikon bodies, but,at this stage of my life 64 I have no feelings for going out with a ton of equipment, which 90% stays in bag.

All my equipment has a specific purpose for me, D200 80 200 2.8 zoosD700 kit I mentioned general use, D90 and Tamron 17 50 2.8 walkaround, and a assortment of diff lenses for diff times like the 70 300 vr,, and others.

But I have gone back to a simple set up of a good prime and a zoom, if thats not enough, well I'll just look at a good picture and enjoy, won't capture it.

Everyone has their favorites, I'm moving back to where I started 20 plus years ago, just a simple set up and make do.
