Rich Rosen's current gear

Nikon D1X
Nikon D500
Nikon D610
Maybe it's value will come back as an antigue ;-)
The last time I felt this way about a camera, was when I had the D3. There are two reasons for that: burst speed and AF. Both cameras were/are leaders in their class. The D500 does a super job tracking and capturing an erratic moving object such as a football or Lacrosse player. Very pleased!
A little bit cleaner, a little bit faster, than the D600, the D610 delivers on the promise of its predecessor: a full frame enthusiast's camera, packing a 24 mpixel sensor, that many prefer over the D8xx sensor. I like having both.
Nikon D810
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D ED-IF
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm F4G ED VR
The most versatile DSLR on the market today. Its AF, ISO, FPS rate are not the best on the market, but it isn't far behind in any of those catagories. It has a 36 mpixel sensor, that can produce eye popping stills and video.
I rarely, use it, but when I do, it doesn't disappoint. Good sharp lens on my D610.
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-70mm f/2.8 ED-IF
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.8G
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G
I was going to sell "the Beast" when I got the 24-120 f4, but it is just too good to give up.
Least used lens. Good lens, but focal length is boring. I like to carry it when I'm out shooting primes. The wife loves it on the D610, because the kit is light.
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm F1.8G
This first edition 70-200 AFS Nikon lens is still very much viable option, for those who don't want to spend a crazy amount for version 2. It remains viable because, despite Nikon's recent accent on FX cameras, the company still makes some pretty good DX cameras. On that size sensor, version 1 is stellar. Oh, and by the way, except for some vignetting on Fx, it is very good with that size sensor as well
Nikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E II
Sigma 1.4x EX DG Tele Converter
Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM
Very disappointed in its construction. ill contact Sigma for repair.
At 7 1/2 lbs, a beast, but what a beast. Great lens for sports, (hence the name120-300 ...Sport). Clean sharp images with very good AF and VR. In retrospect, if one can't afford a new Nikon 300 2.8 ( retirement), the Sigma is an excellent second choice.

Nikon AF DX Fisheye-Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G ED
This deserves a much higher rating. But the oil and dust issue, really tarnished its reputation. I am glad Nikon FINALLY established a decent policy, that led to my getting a D610, a camera that finally delivered on the promise of the D600
Fun lens. Since I am going back to DX with the D500, I may try to pick this one up aain

The one without VR. Considered pretty good by most. I thought it lacked pop
