do all of you possess the holy trinity? what is your gear list?
I wish. I was gonna get the 14-24 and then I decided I want an STI instead so I'm saving for that now.
12-24 Tokina (though I rarely use it now)
and 4 flashes, stands, etc.
tamron 17-35 2.8-4
Rokonin 85 1.4
and a whole plethora of other lighting gear: Avenger Cstand, B1600, X1600, ABR800, Softboxes of various sizes, 5ft octabox, Softlighters, beauty dish, Umbrellas, various sized stands, boom arm, etc...
60mm 2.8 macro
assorted sb600's a sb900 plus umbrellas stands and softboxes
I'm happy with my gear. Would Like to upgrade some lighting soon, and maybe to a 50 1.4D
I definitely want to take advantage of the MF lenses that I got:
all nikon ais versions.
but that is all I have that would fit on a d700. on the d80, I replaced the focus screen with a split prism screen, but I got so used to using the d80 screen that when I had installed the split prism, it wasnt much of a change. at least in daylight situations.
Im also rocking 11-16 tokina, and tamron 17-50. 1 sb600.
How do u like the 50 1.2? How sharp is it wide open?
fucking way sharp, but the dof is razor thin. breath, and you are out of focus. it takes a while to get used to. I've managed to match my breathing with the subject being in focus. I think the bokeh is equal if not better than the 85mm 1.4.
My D700 will be here tomorrow.
I have an 85mm f/1.4 and i'm trying to get an 24-70 f/2.8
D700 and D70
85 1.4 (just traded my 135/2 dc for an 85 1.4)
105 vr macro
Had the holy trinity, didn't use the 24-70 so I sold it and replaced it with the 50 afd.
Tamron 90 2.8 Macro
what no fisheye? didnt you say you were getting one?
105 2 DC
Yes, I'd like the trinity. But I'm happy with what I have.
one day... one day...
still debating it. the 10.5 f/2.8 is a DX lens and its $700. the 16mm 2.8 is $1000+, and I just don't know how much I would use it for that much money. Thats what I'm debating on... still.
Don't waste the money.
used the 10.5 at the last wedding... SO COOL!
Just don't think its worth $700.
what about this 16/2.8 fisheye
its in nikon mount. its a lot cheaper...
I've learned my lesson w/ third party lenses. Nikkor or go home.
For the things I would use a fisheye for, this would be sufficient.
Does that fisheye Autofocus? If so I'm sold.
Shit, I may get the 35 T/S too
um its 16mm, the depth of focus is enourmous. its manual.
you would have to TRY to take shots out of focus
I like shooting really close portraits with my 14-24
