Re: That combination works up close...

This may or may not help people, but here is what i have and what i still want; and why i want it.


D800+D90 with "2.8 trinity" plus 50mm f/1.4 AI


50mm f/1.4G - for AF

85 f/1.4G - for low light portraits, but the 70-200 f/2.8 VR2 has VR so i am not sure that f/1.4 will gain me much since it has no VR. VR on 70-200 is supposed to give 2 stops.

105mm f/2 VR. It is faster than 70-200 and it has VR. Would use in low light portraits.

zeiss 135 f/2 macro planar - not released yet, i am hoping for great contrast and sharpness. No VR on it scares me for low light shots... the 70-200 f/2.8 may be a better choice there

200mm f/2 - do i really need a reason?

The most difficult situations i shoot at, are the family gatherings like Christmas, i hate using flash and irritating people, so its always a "low light" situation.
