    How's Nikon's Prime Lineup?

    Thx for the info! I for one, love f/1.2, "practical" or not. I've tried the 1.2 AI-S and liked it, but prefer if it had AF. F/1.2 is addictve :) Nikkor 50/1.2 AI-S:

    How's Nikon's Prime Lineup?

    I shoot with a 5D-II and a D700. Both are good systems. I actually bought the D700 to use the 14-24 with AF. However, the lens didn't find much use and I sold it. Along the way, I discovered the amazing 105VR and the forgotten, cheap plastic lens, the 28-200G. So, I'm keeping the D700 to utilize...

    Great shot! I luv this one. I managed to get some street pics in NYC recently. However, I used a 105VR and an evil Canon 16-35L-II :biggrin: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sabesh/sets/72157618647607046/show/ Cheers, Sabesh.

    Considering converting to Nikon

    Hammerhead, I'm a dual shooter. There are a couple of older Nikon lenses which can be had cheap that offer great value: The 28-200G is one of these gems. I bought a used one in mint condition for CAD $225 and luv it! Here's a set I shot with it...

    Stop me before I do something I will regret.

    Oh yeah, the Bokeh is inferior to the 24-70 lens. However, it's really not horrible as many make it out to be. This lens is also sharp @ f/4. More examples (cropped about 60%):

    Stop me before I do something I will regret.

    Bokeh's not bad. Better than the 24-105VR (click on image for access to larger versions): I'm dual shooting too. I can understand the OP's concerns. Canon stuff is lighter and more compact in most cases. Cheers.

    For portraits 85 1.4 or 70-200?

    If you don't mind f/2.8, the 105VR is great for portraits on the go, as VR helps quite a bit. It's produces nice Bokeh.

    New York City with D700 --> Which two lenses?

    Great shot! Not sure what you mean by "Top of the Rock" and "ECB"? I see your point! This would indeed be a great lens for catching people in the streets. Thanks.

    New York City with D700 --> Which two lenses?

    Kurt, I just check out your album. Most of your pics were taken @ 35mm, 50mm & 70mm. So, apprx 50-105mm in Full Frame. I wonder if a 50/1.4 and 105VR will combo will suffice ... BTW, isn't a 180mm a big lens? Thanks, Sabesh.

    Now that's different. I like it. Maybe a 20/2.8 or 35/2 and an 85 or 105. Thx. Thx, that makes sense! Thx all, for your excellent suggestions. Decisions, decisions ..

    New York City with D700 --> Which two lenses?

    Greetings! I plan to take a short trip to NYC in mid-May. Which two lenses would you recommend that I take along? I'm willing to buy/rent lenses if I don't have them. My initial thought is to take the 24-70G & 105VR. Thanks, Sabesh.

    It eventually comes down to testing out yourself. People glorify crappy lenses and complain about good lenses. Major review sites never blurt out the truth in their conclusions as they get ad $$s from the manufacturers and distributors. QC of some the new lenses are suspect too (a la 24-70G). I...
