My Zeiss set will probabely tripple the Islandic Zeissness
Zeiss 21 2.8
Zeiss 25 2.8
Zeiss 28 2.0
Zeiss 35 2.0
Zeiss 50 2.0 MP
Zeiss 85 1.4
Zeiss 100 2.0 MP
all ZF on D700
I also have a number of Nikon Zooms,
very light rather good 28-80 3,5-4,5
a 70-300 VR, a 80-200 2.8 ED
Interesting set! I will probably go for primes with some more gap in focal length.
Just ordered the Sigma 100-300 and the Leica APO Telyt 180 3.4 with a leitax kit. Heard the 180 3.4 is great at infinity. Curious how it compares to the sigma at 300 mm.
The APO Telyt 280/4 is a dream lens. But is it really that much better than the Nikon 300 F/4 at F/8?
I might not bring them all.
21 is a must, I guess, but 25 is much lighter and smaller and might do for hikes.
28 is a good match with 85, but a bit redundant.
I might replace all three of them at some point with the new 25. But then again the 25/2.8 is just as good for landscape closed down...
85 is a bit redundant with 100 MP.
I will need to think hard, and at last, the scale will decide...
I am interested in the Telyt 180/3.4 too. - you mean comparing at 180mm?
Telyt 280/4 is PERFECT wide open. Not sure I want to shoot it at f 8 to often. It might not be that much of a difference between the two (remember: almost every lens is good at f8 ;-) The most important advantage for me of a Nikon 300/4 would be the autofokus and the mucht lighter weight. I had a hard time deciding between the two when a Telyt came up at a reasonable price.... might still get the 300/4 at some point and compare (when some new money comes in...) or the new 80-400 (or 100-500)if Nikon finally decides to bring out a new one in 10 or 15 years...
