The are some canon lenses I miss badly but otherwise Nikon has much better sensor, and faster. The d750 has been really good.

Hi,

I've also been contemplating the D750.. upgrading from the D7000 because i wanted to get a 70-200mm f2.8 lens. (i currently use the 35mm f2 and the 85mm f1.8).

The later mark II Canon lens has got amazing performance, for what ive seen in reviews..

Is that one of the lenses you miss ? Which ones do you miss a lot?

I havent shot weddings (yet!) but i do a lot of indoor..lowlight events..and candid portraits as well. i might go Canon 70-200, or even 100-400 (although it is not so fast of a lens)

Or....do you reckon i'd be ok with the Tamron 70-200 f2.8 G2, on the D750 ?

(plus..the Nikon D750&Tamron is a little over 2.000 €. Even a used 5D Mark iii and the 70-200 f2.8 IS II is well over 3grand!)

I'd much appreciate your feedback.

thanks

cheers

PS: Would the d750+tamron 70-200mm f2.8 G2 focus as fast as a Canon 70-200mm f2.8 II, on a 5D mark III ??

You might wanna watch Tony Northrup's review of the newest Nikon 70-200 F2.8E, even on the D810's 36MP it was actually sharper than the Canon 70-200 IS II on the 50MP Canon 5DSR.
