Hi This what I'm thinking about buying or doing. I do have reasons as weird as it sounds... I'm want to buy a bunch of Nikon gear and I think it will cover just about everything that I want to do with it. Some of it is old, (cameras) and the rest is I think current gear. All of it will be brought used but in great shape and if it needs a CLA or service I'll get it done, no problem. Cameras: 1 Nikon D2Xs and 1 Nikon D2Hs. I know about the noise at higher ASAs and there's newer gear out there but for me I feel that they will be perfect. I won't shoot at anything higher than 800 ASA unless I have to and I know about the noise and I'll deal with it then. I like the design and operating speed of pro bodies, the others (pro amateur cameras) don't cut it for me. I really like the fact that the focusing points are spread out over the frame not grouped in a central area where it's hard to set the focusing where you really want it at times. I'll only shoot raw unless there's a reason to shoot jpeg, which is usually working with a group of photographers and it's an event, you're on deadline where speed is everything. I don't think I'll be doing that much anymore. Btw..I used to own 2 Nikon D2H bodies and I though they were the best digital cameras I ever owned and used, so tough, so fast and easy to use. Lenses: 17-55 f2.8, 18-200 f3.5-5.6, 70-200 f2.8 VR the first one, 1.4 tele-converter, 35 f2 or 35 1.8 DX lens, and I'm not sure a 12-24 f4, maybe, plus either a SB800 or SB900 with the battery pack. These lens are all Nikon either full frame or DX lens. I'm just thinking about the 200-400 f4 or a 300 f2.8 AFI, not really sure at this point. I don't know if I'll really have a use for the long lens or not. Now I'm wondering about what you think about all of this: The good and bad...Your comments and your thoughts will be most welcome. I'm sure I'll find lots of stuff I didn't even think about. Note: I'm not made of money but I think this set of tools will be easy to use and give me the results that I want. This is my tumblr page if you're interested in what I have shot in the past. http://johnrobertmiller.tumblr.com/ Thanks very much for your opinions and comments in advance!
