Read the thread. You are wrong, and the OP knows what he is doing.

I'm curious what folks think are the best options for the new 36MP sensor if one takes cost into account.

With all due respect, who would buy a 36mp camera and then look for budget lenses?

Nothing short of Nikon's finest pro lenses with optimal lighting will get anywhere near what the sensor is capable of, and even then you'll need to take advantage of a very narrow aperture range for maximum sharpness (i.e. around f/5.6).

I feel sorry for anyone spending $3K on this camera who isn't prepared to make an even bigger investment in pro lenses, if they haven't already. If you cannot afford to do that, do not waste your money on this camera.
