Re: Advice on new lens for wildlife photography

I'm definitely a noob ... so take what I say with a pinch of salt so to speak. What I have been doing is looking on the sites of wildlife photographers that I particularly admire and then planning my kit based on what they are sporting. For example one award winning and extremely successful guy has this:

A Nikon D850 and a Nikon D5 with the following lenses:

  • AF-S 20mm f/1.8G ED
  • 24mm f/1.4G ED AF-S Nikkor
  • AF-S 28mm f/1.4E ED
  • AF-S 35mm f/1.4G
  • AF-S 58mm f/1.4G
  • AF-S 105mm f/1.4E ED
  • AF-S 200mm f/2G VR II IF-ED

Doesn't appear to have one mega lens in his kit.  I think a few folks have mentioned this in other threads ... and it makes sense.  Knowing the behavior of the animals etc.  is just as important as the equipment.

Again JMHO
