    Hi everyone,

    Mod - I'm not sure where I should put this post in..

    I'll be heading to Hong Kong soon and thinking of picking up some gears over there. Can anyone recommend some reputable and cheap shops?

    Here is my shopping list:

    CF tripod (Benro maybe?)
    SB800
    Some filters

    My next few questions are on lenses - Is the AF 35mm f/2 really that good? I have not shot one before, but how is it compared to the AF 28mm f/2.8? Is it worth getting the 35mm when one has a 28mm?

    - I'm thinking of getting a macro lens, at the moment I am using a reverse ring BR2a / extension tubes to get the close-up shots. However the DOF is so thin, one slight camera movement and the subject is out of focus.
    Will this happen with a dedicated macro lens like the highly praised Tamron 90mm?

    - Edit -
    I am also looking for a cheap wide angle any suggestions?
    - Edit end -

    Thanks for reading, looking forward to hear some suggestions from you all:)

    Cheers.
     
  2. Hello, I have been using the 105/2.8 AF D for years and love it. It is very sharp and for me makes an exellent portrait lens in addition to being a great macro lens.

    I like the Nikon 20/ 2.8 AF D for a wide angle.

    Cheers
