For me it was a Nikon 80-400 f4.5-5.6 AF which set me back about £1,250 iirc

I still have it though I am considering upgrading to the AFS version which will also be about £1k used.


Used in like new condition 50 year old Leica 50mm F 1.4  that set me back $1900 followed by a used 15 year old Leica 28mm F2 that set me back $1400.  Use the 28mm pretty much everyday and use the 50mm a few times a week.

Yes 100% amateur.

Very happy with the results I get from both so no plans of upgrading to new version of either.
