Erm, are these full frame effective focal lengths? Or the actual FL? If so, what was the sensor format (crop factor)?

I used a d5300. All the above FLs are in FF equivalents (some of the extreme wide angles are from a freinds FF camera)

Ok. I see conspicuous bumps at 16mm and 24mm. So nice primes could be justified for those. The longer FLs could be covered by a zoom or two.

Definitely but wouldnt that hinder me from having the 35-69mm range?

Why? When that could easily be covered by a zoom?

Kelly

I dont want to carry more than 3 lenses. I have drwn a conclusion

So either a 3-zoom kit, a super-zoom + a wide prime, or something like 16-35GM + 28-200 then.

Or since there's almost nothing between 100 and that bump at exactly 200, you forget about everything past 100 and get a 16-35 + 24-105 at about half the total weight.  Drop the 16 and you could do 20/1.8 + 24-105/4 on Sony dropping 40% of what was left if you wanted.

/I'd do two zooms myself and go Canon at the moment because 15(16)-35/2.8 is a revelation indoors, but
