  • Created discussion thread Help me decide!
    I’ve got around $1800 set aside to round out my Z kit. Currently have a Z6, 50mm 1.8s, and Sigma 135mm 1.8 + FTZ. I’m thinking of buying a used 24-70 2.8 S, but I’m wondering if anyone has any ...
  • I think the 135mm 1.8 / 70-200 f4 route is the one I’m going to take. I can see myself wanting the extra reach but I think the 135mm is going to take care of most of my telephoto needs. I can ...
  • For portraits, the 2.8’s DOF would make a pretty big difference. I’ve heard the f/4 is optically excellent, but I would want the extra stop for sure. I do a decent amount of shooting in ...
  • Created discussion thread 24-70 2.8 S… is it worth it?
    I’ve been extremely drawn to buying a 24-70 for the versatile range. I currently have a 50mm 1.8 S and a Sigma 135mm 1.8 on the way. I want something wider than the 50, so my thought was to go ...
  • I think that Nikon will keep their current lineup mostly the same but will change the ethos of their upcoming products to respond to other brands, especially Sony. I think the first thing they ...
  • Yeah, I can definitely see that. The only other benefit of the Tamron to me is the longer reach to 200mm, I could see myself wanting something longer than 135mm. However, I do feel like the prime ...
  • Created discussion thread Tamron 70-200 G2 or Sigma 135mm Art?
    I know these lenses are different beasts but I have nonetheless come down to (most likely) deciding between them. I want something telephoto for my Z6, I have the 50mm 1.8 S and the 56 (85mm) 1.2 ...

  • Yeah that's the approach that I'm trying to take. I certainly can't go wrong with either, but I think the 24-70 might be the more useful option if I'm at a point where I can only afford one at the ...
  • Created discussion thread Z 24-70 2.8 vs. Z 70-200 2.8
    Okay right off the bat I know that these are two very different lenses that do very different things. I currently have budget for one of them, and I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with ...
  • I was in the same boat, I had been using an X-T4 with some Fuji glass but was just really hung up on an FF camera— I just felt like I was missing out. I recently buckled down and bought a Z6 so ...
  • Yeah, that’s what I’m trying to figure out. I don’t really think that a 3lb hunk of glass is something I’m going to be carrying with me all the time, so I’m not sure it’s wise to spend the bulk of ...
  • I appreciate your feedback, it's great to hear from someone who's used it and what you said definitely makes me weary. I've been eyeing the 24-70 2.8 S, it's expensive as heck but it would ...
  • Created discussion thread Any experience with Sigma 24-35mm f2?
    I’m looking into buying a wideish lens for my Z6, and I’m considering the 24-35. It would be far less expensive than buying separate primes or something like a 24-70, though I’m slightly worried ...
  • Yeah, I’m trying to adapt that mindset. I’ve heard that the Z mount 70-200 is about as good as they come, so I almost certainly wouldn’t have to upgrade, and not having to use an FTZ would be ...
  • Created discussion thread Is the 70-200 VR II really that bad?
    I’m trying to find a 70-200 to put on my Z6. I’ve looked at the Tamron G2, Sigma Sport, and now the Nikon VR II. They are all similarly priced used, the Tamron usually being a couple hundred less. ...
  • Created discussion thread Tamron 70-200 G2 vs. Sigma 70-200 Sport
    Hi all, Im currently debating between these two lenses for my Nikon Z6. I don’t quite have the cash to spring for the native Nikkor 70-200 S, and these two seem to be the best more affordable ...
  • For those of you who have had this lens on a Z body, how has it performed? I’ve heard mixed things about the AF performance but I’m not sure I’ll be able to spring the extra cash for the native Z ...
  • I do a decent amount of paid work, so I definitely want to get as good of IQ as I can reasonably afford, hence the interest in 2.8 zooms or faster primes. I’ve looked into both of those but I want ...
  • Created discussion thread Best addition to my Z6 kit?
    Hi all, I currently have a Z6 and the 50mm 1.8S. With a budget of ~$2k, what would you recommend to expand my kit? I shoot a lot of portraits, some landscapes, some sports, and a lot of everyday ...
