What System Meets My Many Needs?

Evening AltLens,

My budget will be about £10,000 (approximately $16,000 or 12,000 Euros). I have been looking at compromises.

I am coming around to the thought of waiting for the Nikon D400 (should it ever be released) which will allow me to make use of the lenses I already have (Nikon 18-70mm f3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom NIKKOR and Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR DX NIKKOR) along with my Nikon SB800 and top of the range Sandisk CF and SD cards.

If the Nikon D400 (or whatever) is released then I can add to my collection of lenses by getting the following: -

  • Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G
  • Nikon 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR Micro Nikkor
  • Nikon 200-400mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S VR Nikkor

I would then also buy a suitable microphone for video along with other necessary bits of equipment.

I am also able to utilise my existing Nikon D200 as a back up camera when I wish.
