Any of you Nikon shooters have any experience with the 16-35 f4 VR? I understand the distortion can be tough below 20mm but is otherwise a sharp lens (according to all those online reviewers). I am looking at this for interior architecture. The 24 PC-E is on the wish list as well but I am not sure I am ready for that one just yet
I'm trying to decide myself between that one and the 14-24mm f/2.8G. By all accounts it's sharp everywhere, but costs a lot more. I thought about the PC-E, but either one of the zooms would be much more versatile.
I have looked at the 14-24 as well and it is defiantly tough to decide between that and the 16-35!
You can add prophet to your business card (just use small font)!
I am trying to rationalize away the thought that I should bite the bullet and get the purpose built architecture lens and you are not helping . I am not a professional photographer (unlike you and others in this thread) but like have designs to move that way in the near future. The fiscally responsible side says get something that can be used for multiple purposes and sold rather easily if need be. The aggressive, quit leaving yourself an escape route, don't ever compromise your integrity, perfectionist side says bite the bullet and buy the $2,000 PC-E lens or you will always wonder if it mattered!
Well this turned into a psychology lesson rather quickly! I guess if it were easy everyone would do it and be good at it. Your answer was immensely useful and not boring at all - the bad thing is I had a good idea what your answer would be and I asked anyway...
Tough on us both for sure Nick. I love every minute that I spend with each of them and they are all growing up so fast that it makes me realize how fleeting all of this is. I hope that Chandler's and my time together, and the myriad of experiences that we share will provide him with great memories, some life experience and confidence so he can better handle what life will inevitably throw at him down the line. Who knows, he might be the one that decides to pick up my cameras and carry on.
