Considering that you're on a tight budget, already have a fast 50mm and the long end covered, I'd get a versatile wide-to-normal zoom, or ultra-wide lens of some sort.
If primes are your thing, a fast 24 or 28 like the old Sigma 24/1.8 or 28/1.8 can be had for $250-350ish. The 35/2 AFD is a great lens, but too similar to your 50/1.8.
If you want a do-it-all zoom, the 28-75/2.8 is an excellent lens. You likely won't need anything else with your D600. The 24-85 VR leaves a bit to be desired in terms of light intake at night, but is otherwise an excellent option.
The 14mm f/2.8 Rokinon/Bower/Samyang prime or the Tokina 17mm f/3.5 are both fantastic as well when you want to get wide on the cheap. Alternately, if you want a wide-coverage lens, the Nikon 18-35 AFD is a great lens on FX. Lightweight, inexpensive, sharp, and compact - this is my recommendation.
If I were you? I'd pack your D600, add a 18-35 f/3.5-4.5 AFD, the nifty fifty f/1.8, and your Tamron 70-300VC and call it a day.
If you were going minimalist and trying to save on size/weight, but not planning on shooting super low light without a flash? D600 + Tamron 28-75/2.8 or Nikon 18-35 AFD + 70-300VC. Skip the middle range and "zoom with your feet"!
First post and am hoping to get some advice. I just went full frame with the D600 and am planning a trip in Hawaii in September. Basically I need some advice on a light walking around/landscape lens. I'm torn between a few lenses. Do I stick with prime and get a 24 2.8 and a 35 f2 or do I go with an all purpose zoom like the 28-85 kit lens or the Tamron 28-75 2.8?
As you can tell my budget isn't huge. I already own a 50 1.8 and a Tamron 70-300. Are their any other...Show more →
