Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF-S

1960NAS_180
Review Date: May 31, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,100.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Great lens for its focal length. Just needs to be stopped down a bit to shine perfectly.
Cons:
Soft corners...but its not as bad as people say.



 
Nikon D700

D700
Review Date: Apr 1, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $2,400.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Many little things that really show nikons attention to detail, such as the diopter knob, added accessories. You pay for what you get, especially with this camera.
Cons:
Price, but you pay for what you get. First nikon camera so I cant really comment as of yet.



 
Sigma 150mm f2.8 APO Macro DG EX HSM

Sigma_150_macro
Review Date: Oct 8, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $460.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharper than a tack
Cons:
AF...but who uses AF with macro work? Sigmas history on the lens coating, very brittle



 
Canon EOS 40D

40d
Review Date: Sep 13, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,200.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Good if you are just starting out with DSLR's, half beginner modes and half advanced modes on the dial so you can take your time learning.
Cons:
Starting to feel the crop sensor squeeze, 5D is *only* a couple thousand more :P



 
Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X 116 PRO DX SD

atx116
Review Date: Sep 10, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $560.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Fast/Quiet AF, low distortion at 11mm on APS-C sensor, f/2.8
Cons:
limited zoom range but thats to be expected for its purpose.

I'm fairly new to DSLR's and lenses in general but this lens offers a very wide range with f/2.8 through and through unlike the 12-24 f/4 that tokina offers. VERY useful for nighttime landscapes or even during a sunset.
