dSLR set

  1. I am in the need of a camera system for general purpose and events, outside the
    studio.<br>
    I am on budget but want some quality, so my thoughts are like this:<br><br>

    Nikon 180mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF<br>
    Nikon 85mm f/1.8D AF<br>
    Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF<br>
    Nikon 35mm f/2D AF<br>
    Tokina 12-24/4<br><br>

    Nikon D300 <br>
    MB-D10 Grip<br>
    EN-EL4a or EN-EL4<br><br>

    Nikon Camera Control Pro 2 software<br><br>

    NIKON SB800<br>
    Nikon SB-R200<br><br>Any ideas or improvments. ?<br>Regards Martin
     
  2. I wish I had your budget... ;-)

  3. I would hate to change lenses especially during an important event. I would go two bodies, a
    2.8 zoom and maybe one or two primes instead of one d300 and 5 lenses. I think the canon
    40d is alot more bang for the dollar than the d300 if you are on a budget. You can get a new
    40d and a EX 30d for the price of a d300.
     
  4. D300 with 17-55mm 2.8 and the 85mm 1.8. Or the Canon 40D with 17-55 2.8 and the 85mm 1.8. When you make some money if you feel like you are reaching for a longer lens look at one of the stabilized 70-200mm zooms and another body. Good luck.
     
  5. Which Nikon lenses did you have (and sell) when you went to MF a few years back?
     
  6. Which Nikon lenses did you have (and sell) when you went to MF a few years back?

    I remember in pain^^:
    20/2.8, 24/ 2.8, 28/2.0, 35/1.4, 35/2.8 shift, 55/2.8 micro, 105/1.8, 135/2.0, 180/2.8 ED, and a 75-150 dont remember the f-stop, maybe 3.5, it was a E but it was very sharp, alltogether a nice set.
    Beside this I have had some Contax RTSII with nice lenses and a Minolta AF set, including a 85/1.4.
    As you can see I have never been a friend of zooms,
    Regards

  7. I think you have a good idea what focal lengths you need, then. I'd start slow, buying the most essential lenses, and building on that later.
     
  8. Hi, my current lens set is
    17-35 f 2,8 AFS --review said it is better than current wide primes

    85 f1,4 AFD -- for portraits and detail

    50 f1,4 AIS -- just a nice old lens,but focusing is not easy in hurry

    Would like to add:
    11-16 f 2,8 Tokina DX -- if it has good review or

    D 300 FX , if ever Nikon make it :)

    SB-800

    So I think your lens choice is good,but also consider that rumor Nikon will update some primes early next year, that change AFD to AFS.
