Picked up a Sigma 30mm 1.4 last Wed, sold my 18-200 on Friday then the Sigma 10-20 on Sunday and less than an hour ago I picked up a virtually brand new 70-200. Gotta love Craigs List for this stuff.

Man this lens is big, big for what I am used too. Gonna have to start bench lifting my gear to build up the strength to carry this thing around.

I have the 17-55, 70-200, 30mm 1.4, 50mm 1.8 and 85mm 1.8. Oh yeah and the 18-55 for the wife and the D40.

My lens lust is satisfied for the moment, though I may consider selling the 50&85 f/1.8 for just the 85 f/1.4.

It's been a fun and expensive 13 1/2 months of SLR life...

i had a bad (or good depending on your preferences) of NAS in the past 45 days. bought the D3, 24-70, 70-200, F2AS (wanted to have a good manual again) and now i am looking at getting the 35mm f1.4 AIS and the 20mm f2.8 AF-D...

it never ends... the lust, the desire...

Wow, if this is true, looks like I'll have to get my hands on a 50 /1.4 AF-S and a 24mm /1.4 AF-S as well. Hopefully they won't cost too much...

Tim,

Can I ask what made you sell your 28-75 for the 17-50? I'm kind of in this situation right now and I'm looking for a good walk around lens.
