| p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · I need some advice from you Nikon guys (moving to Nikon) |
Hi guys, I haven't been around here long but im always lurking and reading great forum
I have decided to move from Canon to Nikon and get the D600! (last year I toyed with the idea of getting a d7000 but stayed the curse with Canon)
The popup up flash commander, the 100% viewfinder, the 3.2 screen, the crop mode are little things that are important to me.
I am going to sell all my Canon gear, 60D, Grip, Flash, 17-50, 18-135 50 1.4 35 f2 85 1.8 and some more stuff
All comes at around 3000$ for a budget
My question is: what to get with the D600?
A: Should I get the KIT 24-85VR and a SB700 flash (flash photo for me is important)
B: Should I think of getting a Tamron 24-70VC? (That is above budget for about 300$) and slowly grow again?
C: What would you suggest
As a background I shoot a little of everything, lots of travel and family events, some softball but also some more serious things like Portraits for Real state agents, first communions and family portraits along more Model mayhem models here an there.
When I do more serious stuff I tend to use primes more than zooms, sharper, smaller, lighter.
I will be starting from scratch, so slowly I will be adding a 50 1.8G, a 85 1.8G and probably a 70-300 or a 80-200
My flickr if you are at all interested is here
What do you think? A or B or what, I'd love to hear your thoughts and comments?
BTW, I know that FF and moving to Nikon will not make me a better photog, but I have been curious of Nikon for some time now and I like the idea of discovering the brand etc I could get a great 5D2 for 1800 but is not the camera I want at this time.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts!!
