Nikon 35mm f/1.4G AF-S NIKKOR

Review Date: Feb 5, 2014 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,200.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: sharp, depth of field, awesome quality.
can be slow focusing...

this lens changed the quality of the images we were putting out there. the depth of field you can accomplish with such a wide focal length is amazing. shoot this in 2.8 or lower, get close to your subject, and you're going to love it.

Nikon D7000

Review Date: Oct 11, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $990.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: lightweight, SUPER QUIET!, great positioning of buttons like AF selection points, live view. Has a 'Q' (Quiet) mode thats cool--could have its uses. Has all the conveniences of my D700 like fast metering button, interval timer shooting, non-cpu lens data input, virtual horizon. Audio input is big plus, step up for D90 which is what I had prior. And double SD card slots=genius. 6fps fast and responsive. 1080p + 24fps closer to pro. Great value.
The Nikon in camera editing is pretty silly/useless. Would like to see the rectangle viewfinders change on these. Would like to have a dedicated 'AF-On' button.

Got this to replace our D90...like it way more. Vastly more responsive, better video, better image, just better. We actually use this as a backup wedding camera; although its consumer level its def pro-ish vibe. Like that it matches a lot of the features of my D700 including interval timer. Best way to spend $1000 on a camera. We use the nikon 35mm f/2 on it alot and its great--heard good things about the 35mm 1.8 DX but I'm not a fan of having lenses that can't be used on FX.
