One DSLr and Lens? My answer might surprise some...


We all have different photographic equipment needs.

Since I'm not a pro, I would consider a D5 and 200 VR (or possibly the 70-200 f/2.8E Fl).

The 200VR takes a 2x TC well so I have a decent f/4, 400mm for wildlife.

However, since I acquired the 70-200 f/2.8E Fl, I might go with that for the extra flexibility and give up the better IQ and AF of the 200VR.

What about the shorter focal lengths?

Well, my iPhone is doing OK in a pinch....

Best regards,
