Alright... so I'm at the dilema that most of you have been at some point, or continue to be each time you invest into your next piece of gear.. Here are the candidates.. 85/1.8 Nikon 105/2.8 Macro Tokina which I would be mostly using as a portrait lens, but it's nice to have the Macro feature... Let it be known that I'm not apposed to Sigma or Tamron versions... I've just been really happy with my 12-24 Tokina. Also, I can't justify spending the extra 300 for the Nikon with VR unless someone can convince me that it's just that much better. Tokina 10-17 fisheye... I like the creative landscape perspectives they give you, but know NOTHING when it comes to fish eyes whether a fixed focal is better than my logical choice above. The last choice is a given at some point but want input anyways... I'm scared of flash photography and was looking at gaining experience by buying an SB-800 kit and learning flash fill, and off camera flash techniques.. As you can see, all the choices above are roughly 400-500 dollars so any input is greatly appreciated.
