| p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Another one of these lens threads - 180mm vs 80-200mm vs 70-300mm |
To be paired with d600 once enough funds are accumulated
180mm - supposedly great image quality, smaller than the zoom alternative, cheaper at $400 used
80-200mm AF-D - zoom! heavier, worse image quality/rendering than 180mm? more expensive at $600-700 used
Tamron/Nikon 70-300 - slow, worse image quality than 180, how does it compare to 80-200 stopped down sine d600 is quite capable at high iso? And of course longer reach on fx and cheapest at $300 used. However, no TC use
To be honest i am probably going to eliminate the 70-300 as i would assume the image quality does not compare (would love to be proven wrong)
I've used primes, and of course they are not as convenient, but still very workable. This will be my only lens purchase in awhile and only lens to cover that range for awhile. I would love to get into some type of either photojournalism or event photography, therefore im assuming a zoom will serve me more, but this is kind of a pipe dream at the moment.
Anyway, would love to hear some thoughts. TY!
