p.1 #1 · Lenses for D600?


Got a kit 24-85VR, which is a decent lens. I have had 24mm/35mmSHIFT Olympus for Canon which I can use on D600, I guess. However I may have budget for couple of primes (more 1.8 than 1.4 budget!), which one do you recommend?

For Canon I have
24mmTSE I which I will miss. However can not afford TS at the moment.
70-200/4L - will for sure miss!!!
85mm/1.8.
And the olympus ones mentioned above

The 85mm 1.8G, if you like that FL, the 28mm 1.8G is a great lens for the loot- and the 60mm 2.8G micro is stupid good.

Depends on how you see the world. Every answer will be different.

I would get myself the sigma 35 1.4 or the 28 1.8G.. I have a 85 1.8 which is surprisingly good but I don't use it enough and might sell it..

Again, it depends on how you see the world..

If you tell us what you are shooting, you are much more likely to receive intelligent replies- i.e., landscape? Portraits of 1 person? Portraits of families of 6? Sports? Macro shots of the bacteria from where the roommate never cleans the kitchen? Etc.

I just ordered the 28/60/85 1.4g. Any other lens I should add? Wish there was a 135 like Canon's...

The new 70-200/4.0VR is as good as Canon's counter part. It's new so it's rather expensive. The price will come down after a couple of months.
A new 135 is already patented, but that one will sure cost you something.

It depends on what you want to shoot. Here's my purchase order for good performing, non-expensive lenses. Your order might vary depending on what you want.

Nikon 24-85mm f3.5-4.5G VR
Nikon 50mm f1.8G
Nikon 85mm f1.8G
Nikon 28mm f1.8G
Nikon 70-300mm f4.5-5.6G VR or 70-200mm f4 VR
Nikon 60mm f2.8G Micro (if you macro shots)

This would cover the bases for you. Except for the telephotos, the others right now have rebates until the end of the month.

If you shoot macro and the range is right the Tamron 90 2.8 is an excellent lens as well as the 28-75 2.8 from them.

My next purchase I want to make for my 600 will be the Nikon 24-120 f4. Great event lens very similar as the Canon 24-105 f4 counterpart.

Those are one of the best values in the Nikon lineup so congrats! The 60 is the sharpest lens I've yet to try. I would recommend the Sigma 35 1.4 but you have that FL almost covered with the 28 1,8g.

I highly recommend trying out manual AI-AIS lenses, especially the 105 2.5 AIS, the 28 2/8 AIS & the 50 1.2 AIS. Those have legendary status for a reason and they go really cheap here on the B&S forum. Here's "the thread", every time I browse it I reach for my pocket

For a budget telephoto the 70-300 VR is decent, the Tamron 70-300 VC is on the same level if not better. If you want to exceed the $1000 limit then I'd go for the 300 f/4 AF-S.

How are manual lens on the D600? never tried it. Also, I cancelled the 35 sigma since I didn't want to play roulette with the focus issues...and I think I really like the 28mm perspective from what I have seen.

MF works great on the D600, probably better than on my old film bodies with the confirmation dot.

I shoot the following lenses with the D600

24-70mm kit lens that came with it
70-300 ED AF zoom

the rest are manual focus

20mm f3.5 AIS
24mm f2.8 AIS
50mm f1.8 AIS
85mm f1.4 (Rokinon)
105mm f2.5 AI'd
135mm f2.8 AI'd
300mm f4.5 AI-IF ED

and I am thinking of adding a 14mm Rokinon, a 16mm fisheye Nikkor and a 50 f1.2 Nikkor to the camera bag.

None of my MF lenses are chipped, but you can program the body and just use a quick button dial combo to tell it what's mounted.
