Re: Prime based kit

I carry the D700, 24mm, 50mm and 85mm the OP mentions-- f/1.4. It's still a heavy kit, but the lenses are compact, and image quality is superb. Like another poster I sold my 24-70mm f/2.8 -- I had the holy trinity of zooms first, and then could not resist the 24 prime.

I still have the 14-24mm and the 70-200mm--they are just amazing lenses, but they do not travel with me daily.

I also have the 135mm DC lens--quirky and useful for some situations and fun to play with. I keep the 105 around for macro work.

At some distant point I will probably sell the zooms, but I'm not there yet. I simply love the prime lenses. There is nothing better.
