Hi friends, After much research, recommendations and hands-on experience, I have decided to convert. I sold all of my equipment over the past week and am preparing to order in the next day. I know a couple of the lenses that I want and will order outright, but Nikon is new to me and despite reading literature on the various lenses and experimenting with friend's gear, I still have a couple of questions. 1. WHAT I'VE DECIDED and WHAT I NEED TO KNOW: I am purchasing the d700 and 70-200 VR II lens outright. I shoot mainly family/ children sessions but have several weddings booked this year. I know the 70-200mm is a FANTASTIC lens and have been fortunate to play around with it on the d700 ... really love it. I will also add a traditional 50mm 1.4 to begin with .... not sure if I should go with the 1.4G or 1.4D???? 2. I would like to add a third lens. My favorite lens previously was my 85mm 1.8. I know this is covered with the 70-200mm, but I love the quality of primes. I was shooting on cropped sensor, though, so I am not sure if I would love it as much on the full sensor ... any experience with this one???? I am also considering the 17-55mm and new 24mm 1.4 for this third option. I have yet to look at the flashes ... recommendations are appreciated. Please let me know if you need any more info! Thanks a ton!
