Hi. Back again.

My D700 has shipped and will arrive tomorrow. Thankfully, it will be a sunny, low assignment day, so I will be able to get out after I charge the battery!

I have the following lenses: 28 2.8ais, 50 1.2ais, 85 2 ai, 105 2.5ais. I was thinking of the 135 2.8ais, but realize that I have absolutely no AF lenses to fit this camera, and no zooms. I got a little better than expected on the sale for my Canon stuff, so I have another $500 or so to play with.

When I go to Lightroom and look back on my 3-4 years with the 7D, more than 90% of my shots were taken with the 17-55 2.8. So I could be looking for a mid range af zoom, or, with the 28 and 50 in mf, a long range zoom to compliment them. Preferably af.

Any suggestions?

You can pick up a sweet copy of a 35-70 f/3.5 AI-s for less that two hundred dollars. If you want an inexpensive AF zoom, you might want to consider the 28-105 f/3.5-4.5 or the 28-70 f/3.5-4.5, either of which can be bought for the same amount. The first lens I bought after receiving the D700 was the 28-70 f/2.8 AF-s which is a great lens, but will cost closer to a thousand dollars, in part because its replacement costs ove fifteen hundred.

Happy shooting.


The 35-75mm f2.8 is supposed to be a good lens too.
