Re: Experience with the 24-85mm lens kit after use the 85mm f1.8 for a while

I too own the 85 1.8G, lens I find it perfect for my uses. All the varied responses to the recently released zoom lenses by Nikon, helped me to decide to go to all primes on my D700.

It seems all the recent zooms 24 85 16 35 24 120 all they bring to market is a love hate fervor, about their uses.

I'm sure a lot of the same happens with the primes, but, I will stick with them.

I now with my D700, have these primes and have given up on the new zooms, Tokina 17 3.5  Nikon 28 1.8G, Nikon 50 1.4 G, and the Nikon 85 1.8G lenses, I feel these will cover all my needs, and if I should need a zoom, I can pull out the 70 300vr .

Its very disturbing to read these people constantly bad mouthing newer products, I just don't know which way to turn nor do I know who to believe about IQ, on newer products, so this is how I responded and now I have gotten to where I don't even read anything on the zooms.

I can't wait to see all the bad mouthing when Nikons 70 200 f4 comes to market.

Just my two cents.
