New to this forum. 6 years ago I abandoned Nikon for Leica, then Sony, then Fuji (I was wealthier than I am now and knew less. about photography than I do now). About a month ago I was reviewing my photos from the last Nikon I owned (the D3S) and they were the most beautiful images yet. So I went out and bought a beat up D3S that had had its shutter replaced for 400 Euros. 3 days ago I reached a set of photos taken with the 200mm f2 VR 1 (I rented it for a trip). And now I just have to have that lens. Problem is that I am now dirt poor. If I sell every piece of photographic equipment I own, I might just be able to afford it. I shoot some street and some environmental portraiture and my plan is to use the lens for both. It's an insane idea, I know but I don't think I'll rest until I have tried it. I'll be thrilled If I come away with a tenth of the keepers I currently get. If I had it I think I would shoot it every day. A beat up D3S and the chubster - the stuff of dreams!
