Yeah, yeah, yeah.... I know: The Trinity is supposed to be three zooms.

But this is MY Trinity, recently completed with my acquisition of the 17-35.

Good job!

Mine is similar (on a D700):

1. 17-35 f/2.8 D
2. 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 D
3. 200mm f/4 AIS

I think this is what I'm going to take to Nepal with me.

Beautiful shots. I like your choice of lenses. I have a 105 f/2 DC and a 50 f/1.8G, and I recently shot a borrowed 17-35 for the first time. It was fun and much different than the 50.

I went this route as I shoot wide-to-ultrawide most of the time. Back in my film days, I shot with a 20, 28 and 50. So the 17-35 repeats the old 20 and 28 primes, yet gives me just a bit more FOV at 17, and a bit less at the 35 end. The 50 is just far enough from the 35 to make a difference, plus it's one of the sharpest lenses around. The 105 Micro doubles as a nice tele.

I also pack a 52-52 reverse adapter, so not only does the 105 give me up to 1:1 ability, but putting the 50 on it gets me 2.1:1 to 3.14:1 for exceedingly little cost, size, bulk and weight.

I generally carry a 77 VND and CPL, as well as a 77-52 adapter. Toss in a Manfrotto 550 with a 410 geared head, and I'm ready for just about anything short of birding/wildlife. If I want to 'go long', however, I have a Nikkor 70-300, 500 reflex, and a Celestron 2000mm.

I would have loved a 20, 28 and 50, but there's not a 28 out there that I'm happy with.

Get the 24mm f/1.4 then - that should make you :biggrin: (but your wife might look more like :mad: when she sees the bill for it.) :wink:

The 20mm f/2.8 works well on the D600 - I have a riend with that combo and we swap lenses all the time. I like the 20mm. I got the Tamron in my sig because I wanted a zoom in that range though.

I have a lot of criticism for the 28mm 1.8G (especially build quality for the price) but I tolerate it... because I like the focal length and was the best option for me after all.

I'm old-fashioned. I like aperture rings. I'm not much into G glass.
