Re: D600 + 28-300 zoom

Well, I did the best of both worlds. I have the 24-120 and the 28-300. By the way from 70-300 at f8 and f11 the 28-300 outperforms my 70-300.

For serious shooting I use the D800 with the 16-35 and the 24-120. When I think that I will need more telephoto, I add the 28-300 for the 120 to 300 range. When I do walk around and/or want to travel light I just take the 28-300 and maybe the 50 1.8 and/or the 20 2.8.

I have just added the D600 as a slightly lighter backup body and/or 2nd body when I don't think that I will have time to changes lenses.

I anticipate being quite happy with the D600 hanging on the 28-300 as needed.

Just my style. We all differ. Between my wife and I we have two 28-300's and are happy with both. I shoot raw, process with CS-6 and do on occasion print fairly large.
