Thanks all for the input.
I wasn't specifically looking for a macro, but I'm not opposed to it either. I'm trying (still) to get my bag "established" as to what I want to "always" carry. In the "old days" (read young sailor with no money) I carried a bag that had this lineup:
Sigma 28mm Macro
Nikon 50/2.0 (little used)
Nikon 75-150 Series E
That was it, shot chrome, life was simple (i.e. ignorance is bliss).
Today ... thanks to the wonderful members of FM ... ignorance has been obliterated, but I'm still yearning for that (elusive) bag. The biggest problem is that now that I've been exposed to the alt realm ... I haven't met an alt that I didn't like.
Of course, that's been an ongoing problem of many a "lens-a-holic" ... but I'd like to make a move away from that and I recently purchased a 24 TS-E that is intended to "anchor" my bag as a "lifetime" lens because there is no "alt" for it.
So, that puts me thinking something like 24 tilt, 60-75 (knowing I don't like 50's), 90-110 & Sigma 100-300/4 with a 1.4X as my "ready for anything" bag.
But, as many of you know choosing between such glass as the Leica 90/2.8, Nikon 105/2.5 & Mamiya 110/2.8 for your "100" is no easy task either ... kinda like choosing between a brunette, a blonde & a redhead. (My wife never has learned to appreciate that analogy.)
Anyway, my profile has the laundry list of glass I currently own. Feel free to make a bag retooling recommendation ... kind of a pick 4 or pick 5 ... looking at IQ and versatility to build the "ready" kit.
I suppose if I were to build it myself today (with what I've got) it would look like this:
Canon 24/3.5 TSE
M645 80/4 Macro
Leica 90/2.8 R
That being said, I'm looking at the 60-75 range as a way of maybe removing the 35-70 and/or the 80 from the equation with something a bit faster ... hence, the OP.
Again, thanks for the input.
Also, Jim ... you got any pics/links for that Sekor your daughter has stolen from you?
