Re: Don't ignore his/her $30k Nikon equipment list

Hi Whoosh,

Thanks for taking the time to look at my equipment list.

Unfortunately that is company gear and I have to give it up.

But the silver lining is that I have wanted to make the switch to mirrorless for a while. I have Panasonic gear but there are certain limitations to that gear for stills in my line of work.  I still love the video and the size but contrast detect focus(plus DFD) are not as reliable as D850/d5.

I really love the D850 and was hoping the Z7 would be in the same league but I got to test it and was not thoroughly impressed.  So my options with mirrorless will regretfully not include Nikon for now.

As for not replying to all the  comments I thank you.  I am a little overwhelmed at all the responses.  I have been busy looking for new opportunities and trying to reply as time allows.

btw whoosh Can you do my taxes for 2018 btw? I'll PM you my itemized expenses etc:).

With that $30k he/she can afford to buy both a Sony and a Fuji setup and keep some of his Nikon setup. The OP has responded just 2-3 times after his/her original post. If he/she could figure out a way to buy the $30k Nikon setup - he/she can figure out what to buy among Sony or Fuji. From my reply to his/her post:


As per your profile among your equipment: D5 ($6.5k), D850 ($3.3k), 24-70 f/2.8 ($1800), 17-35 f/2.8 ($1900), 70-200 f/2.8 ($1900), 24 f/1.4 ($2k), 35 f/1.4 ($1700), 400mm f/2.8 (used to be $8.5k), 300mm f/2.8 ($6k). So around $30k worth equipment that you must have bought over a period of time.
