Marius Shanzer's current gear

Nikon D700
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
After four years and many assignments, I still haven't found a replacement in the Nikon line for under $6500. Nothing else matches it for price, AF performance and image quality in low-light combined with speed. Just need video.
All it's cracked up to be but fragile. Zoom will freeze from even a gentle tap. See Roger Cicala notes at
As good as they say.
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G
Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM
Tokina AT-X Pro 100mm f/2.8 Macro
Very good lens although for twice the money one could now buy the Sigma, if one wanted near ultimate quality. Slow autofocus, as is typical of these lenses.
Sold, not good enough.
Other gear:
  • Micro Nikkor 55mm f/3.5 Gift, not yet used.
  • Nikkor S-C 55mm f/1.2 (manual focus) Gift from a Life photog. To be used after modifications.
  • PC Nikkor 35mm f/2.8 (manual focus) Are PC lenses obsolete in the digital age?
