  • I'm glad to hear you like it. If you haven't realised yet - this forum is a mixup. There are pros who have very strong opinion about things, and you should listen them cause they give you good ...
  • You are wrong - Nikon 50 f1.8g is actually pretty decent lens. And it's a pro lever - depends how you use it. It's one of Nikon's decent priced, it seems you don't know how to use it correct. Just ...
  • Yes - Tamron 85/f1.8VC is definitely worth it's price. Now that I have made the change and sold my Nikon 105vr micro and the last one of my SB-900's - I was able to get the cash for the Sigma ...
  • No I didn't. Nikon claimed at the time it's the flash aimed for professionals. Truth is, it was  a big flaw. It can't sustain continue use without shutting down. -Jar1San
  • I wouldn't recommend Nikon SB-900, it has a overheating problem which is really annoying. I managed to get maybe less than 10 shots in a row on a sunny day and the flash shut itself down not to ...
  • I won't comment about Nikon 1.8G AF, cause I never owned one. Tamron 1.8 nails AF pretty good. As far as it goes - I've owned Nikon 85/1.4 until it got stolen. But it's totally different league in ...
  • I see your point. Somehow here in Europe (especially in Finland) Nikon has overpriced it's products. They don't see us for market reasons. For instance new line of quality optics - so I read a lot ...
  • For your information - I bought Tamron 85 1.8 VC brand new just 599€  without defects - while The Nikon version is 549€.  So the price difference isn't so great. Jar1San
  • You are right- it was FX-lens. Cheers.
  • If this is true - interesting...but I think I've made my mind. And no, VR is no issue. Cheers.
  • You might be right, it's so long ago I had it - so don't remember correctly. When I had it - built in motor it didn't have, that's for sure. I have check from my archives which version I had. Cheers.
  • Yes, the picture is starting to clear for myself. Now that you presented the options - I think Sigma 135 it is. I like the idea of set of primes 20,50,85 and 135. Maybe it's time to sell 105mm VR ...
  • Yes, probably - I didn't check it when I wrote this. This was years ago before FX really hit the market. Tamron used to have 28-75/f2.8 specially made for DX. Now they have made a new FX version. Y ...
  • Sorry - my bad if I mislead you something. I do club gigs sometimes (not often) - my main interest is portraiture. For landscape I mainly use 20/f1.8, sometimes 50/f1.8 - still life and portrait ...
  • I understand that this issue may be a breaking point for many. Modern cameras handle high ISO so well (including my D750), so I don't consider this a threat. I don't want to carry huge and heavy ...
  • Thanks for suggestion, but I don't want another macro. If I would buy longer focal length than 135mm - I'd buy 180mm/f2.8 AF-D.
  • A big thank you for sharing these samples. I'm glad to hear some experiences and see some results. I assume that you have experienced the Nikon f2 DC lenses so you know what is the difference. Niko ...
  • Thanks for sharing your thoughts and photo sample. Yes, I'm also having a discussion with myself between zoom and the Sigma. However, I have had 80-200 and 70-200 f2.8 zooms and I remember the size ...
  • I'm glad to hear positive news. I've had two f2.8 zooms - they are useful, but they are big, heavy and obtrusive. You're right about intimidation of people. The bigger your equipment is the more ...
  • Thanks for your input. Yes I'm leaning more into Sigma. I want/need a quality portrait lens with ability to control the DOF better + size and weight is a important factor for me. I don't want to ...
