I am looking to buy some new lenses and... I have been debating this for while trying to figure out if I should get what I want to get =p I started out with D300 which my girl friend is using now (occasionally my backup) and currently am using D700. Other than 18-70mm kit lens that came with D300, I have been staying with prime lenses mostly: 20mm f2.8, 35mm f2, 50mm f1.4. I have been looking at 24-70mm f2.8 and 85mm f1.4 for long~ time now and... for what I do (hobby mostly, nothing professional), I have decided to go with 85mm f1.8 although I still dont know whether I am going to get 1.8D or 1.8G. (may be you guys can help me on this too) I do lot of landscape picture, storm chasing and occasional event photo for friends and time to time, having prime lenses cause problems - changing lenses and carrying so much things. My biggest concern is 24-70mm f2.8... I know it is one of the best lens you can own (holy trinity) but for what I do and for what I need, I just dont know if it is worth the investment. If I sell D300 with 18-70mm, it probably would be easy choice... but knowing that I am going to hold on to them, I just dont know what to do. At this point I am either going to buy 24-70mm f2.8 or not. If I buy a mid-range zoom lens, I would rather get the lens that will do it right. But looking at what I already own and being hobby photographer, I dont know if I should even consider buying this lens. What do you guys think? stay with prime lenses that I already have including 85mm or get 24-70mm as well.
