[[D800]] Lens combination help 35 1.4G and 70-200 VR currently
I have all the lenses mentioned above except the 85/1.4G (I have the 85/1.8G and love the light weight). On the D800e I'm finding I use the triad of 24/1.4G, 35/1.4G, 85/1.8G the majority of the time with the 200/2, ZF100/2 taking up most of the rest. I only use the 70-200VRII on the D3 for kids sports. Therefore I agree with adding the 24/1.4 but would reconsider the 85/1.8G since it really will save you a lot of funds so you can get closer to the 200/2. The 200 is by far the best portrait lens period.-- hide signature --
Just what I was looking for! Thanks One more question.. 85mm 1.8G or the 70-200 VR for portraits?
sfnikon and I have almost identical lens set ups except I don't have the Nikon 24G. I too recommend going with the 85 f1.8G over f1.4G. Zeiss 100f2 and Nikon 200f2 are magical on the D800 imo.
I prefer the 85 for portraits over the 70-200 at 85mm. You can get the 85 f1.8G and the upcoming 70-200 f4 combined for less than the 70-200 f2.8 alone.
If I were buying a WA, I'd get either the Zeiss 21 or 25f2(my pref)....or wait and see what Zeiss's new "ultra" resolution line of lenses turns out to be, but those will be big bucks. ($3k-ish). Or how about a Samyang and really save some $$?
