Re: "I am selling my Nikon gear"

It would be interesting to put the Fuji 14mm up against the Nikon 14-24 . . . or even the Fuji 10-24 when it gets here. I was never that impressed with my 14-24. At 24 it really wasn't that exceptional, either. What really bugged me was FLARE. If the sun was anywhere within a 180 degree range, flare was there! Then finding a fixed focal lens to replace it became a real search!!! Then there was the filter thing! And the size! And how clumsy it was to use - and how vulnerable the front element was. Great for interior shots - sometimes.

We shall see. Maybe I will grow to hate the Fuji X-Pro but I doubt it.

Pretty simple: different photographers, different approaches. I have a full Nikon system. I've never sold a single lens, speed light or body. I hand my older bodies down to friends and family. I keep my glass. I'd never abandon a built up system unless I was literally starving to death.

But that's me. I'm not everyone.

I don't miss my D700 or D800 that much, nor the 50 or 85.....but the 14-24 was sad to part with. Who knows....may buy it back if a D4x comes out!
