Re: Thinking of getting into FX but have a few reservations

Thanks for the responses guys.

Regarding the 24-85 lens, I hear conflicting things about it. Thom Hogan says it's good but then I see other people saying it has poor bokeh and distortion. Is it worth it do you think to drop the $550 on it? That's quite a bit of money for a kit lens and I was hoping to get some nice DOF subject isolation and this lens doesn't seem to be able to deliver that well. I could get one of the numerous primes as mentioned but I also like having some zoom ability.
