Re: Nikon Mid Range Zoom for Landscapes on a D800

The issue for landscape vista -- Particularly for landscapes -- is corner sharpness.  Viewers poke their noses in the corners of the print.  On the other hand, the subject ain't moving, and you (mostly) can.

For my landscape use, i bought a pair of f1.8Gs from Nikon -- the 28mm and 85mm -- and couldn't be happier.  When the day comes that i have a 36meg FX sensor (i shoot a D7000 now), i expect that i will be just as happy.

Semi-professional in early 1970s; just a putzer since then. interests: historical sites, virginia, motorcycle racing. A nikon user more by habit than choice; still, nikon seems to work well for me.
