So far I have for the D7500:

1.8/20 mm FX, 1.8/50mm FX and the 28-300 VR, left over from my former FF (D750) times.

The 20mm makes for interesting wide angle shots with a shallow DOF and doesn´t look oversized on the D7500. Now I just have to wait for spring.

I´ll probably sell the 50mm and will certainly sell the 28-300 VR, as the IQ looks horrible with APS-C (it was surprisingly good with the D750).

In DX-size I have:

Tokina 11-20 (supposedly great sunstars)

Nikon 18-140 (surprisingly good bokeh for a zoom lens)

And the Micro 85mm VR is expected to arrive anyday now.

The three recently acquired DX lenses cost me 750.00 € and cover all of my use cases.

I´ll get the 16-80, should the 18-140 turn out to be not good enough. Also the 70-300 AF-P DX would make some sense (on rare occasions).

This stuff certainly not state of the art, but puchasing a 17" printer last spring was, as I said, an eye opener. I got great prints from the plasticky Fuji XC 50-230 (see shots below) and I´m not expecting the Nikon glass to be noticably inferior.

It looks like it is time for you to start posting on the following Nikon forum, you did decide to leave Fuji - right?

It sounds like you are trying to convince us you are doing the right thing.
