I really think Monty's going to like the 14-24mm knowing his taste for those wide shots

I borrowed this setup from a friend once, was surprised at its weight also. It delayed me buying a dslr by a good 2 years.

I actually sold the D70 a little while after that and bought a Panasonic FZ50. The Panny was capable of images as good as the D70, but nothing like today's DSLR's.

Very nice Ron, I really like the first one. Not a bad lens is it? It's what I caught the rainbow with as well.

I'm sure I will have a lot of fun with it.

I'll tell you one thing, a D800 with a grip and a 70-200 is one HEAVY pig



Yes, but get in post and crank those curves at high ISO and the weight will tend to melt away. Also, at base ISO the highlights head room is just awesome . . . .

I think it's as you said many times. A real nice lens that you can walk around with and not need 3 lenses.

I think a real nice kit would be the 28mm f2.8 AI-s, 50-135mm f3.5 AI-s and the 180mm f2.8 ED. And perhaps the 55mm f2.8 for micros.

Man, the more and more I see the 50-135, I want one. I think I would use it more than the 80-200 I use now. Anyone want to trade me?

They are cheap enough to have both. The only weird thing I hate about the 50-135mm. It is 62mm. A real oddball for Nikon. Different cap, different hood and on and on. It is however quite a bit smaller and easier to walk around with than the 80-200 MF

This is too funny, I am now getting a reverse itch I want to pull out my 14-24 after months of hibernation and try it out.

AF and MF can coexist, whatever your itch is for the day just scratch it.

For dx I carry the 16 mm 3.5, 35 mm 1.4, 85 mm 1.4 and 135 mm 2.8.

I don't have much of a preference for the filter size...since I don't have anything to put on there. Anyone have one they want to swap with me? I would consider the Series E 75-150mm as well (keep up with the rest of my growing Series E family) The extra reach is nice, but haven't needed it yet and I don't see a need anytime soon.

Leighton, up further north a bit from you there was a faint rainbow here, nothing like the intense one you posted.

There was an interesting light that was disappearing fast along with the sun, I tried to capture it on this tree with the 35 f2 OC. The branches almost looked orange.

I am surprised there isn't a 50mm in there... You know, I didn't know until last week that you shot with a D7000...I always thought you shot FF with the quality of your pics.

A real nice kit for your D7000. I always wanted the 135mm f2 when I had my D7000 so I could have an equivalent 200mm f2.

Thank you Kevin. The D7000 is a great camera with an amazing dynamic range. It is a very capable camera. As far as the 50mm I have a 50 mm 1.4 but on crop I prefer the 35 as my normal lens.

I hear ya there... I need a 35mm... I have been using that 28mm as my "normal", but would like a 35mm. I have been using the Series E 50mm as a portrait lens and for things that I want very detailed (its tough to focus sometimes, but the detail is awesome).
