I agree with you 100%... my current dream kit is.. 24/1.4 (opted for the Sigma 24/1.8), 50/1.4 (own), 85/1.4D (own), and 135/2DC (pending sale w/ FM member) and i'm sure this "dream kit" will change & change again... haha
For the short time I had the 105 2.5 AI-S i was impressed, so i'll keep it on the list to own again down the road! I think I will invest more in MF lenses when i upgrade to a FX body
Since the only Nikon camera I've owned is the D700, it is the only measure I have of what it is like to shoot with manual focus lenses. Doubtless, the D700 with its bright viewfinder, works beautifully with these lenses. I see you're building your kit with lenses you can carry over once you buy full frame. I did the same when I was building my Canon kit. I never bought a DX lens, despite the fact the 5D hadn't yet appeared on the scene. I didn't even consider Nikon until the D700 appeared. I know the benefit of the cropped sensor when shooting long, but birding has never caught my fancy. Full frame all the way for me.
Have fun JR and remember buying gear is only the beginning... There are photos to take!
