    Nikon D300 is my weapon of choice. What would be an all around, kick assss lens for shooting in low light situations? Clubs, recording studios, close quarters? I need the lowest F-stop. I use my 10mm (2.8) fisheye Nikon lens at times when in clubs, along with an 18-55 (crappy F-stop)
    I shoot live acts where I'm up close to the artist, I roll with them in limos, shoot everything close up for their promo needs. So I need some advice on the next lens I should nab, one that will be perfect for what I have described above. I got all Nikon- 50MM1.4, 18-55 3.5, 70-200, 10mm fisheye 2.8,
    So what next?

    Thanx!!

    Sigma 10-20mm. Nearly every nightclub photographer I see out these days has one. Not so useful for the up close of the band, but hey you have the 50mm f/1.4 already, so what more could you want :)

    I picked up the 35 1.8. So far I am pleased with it:


    35mm
    F1.8
    ISO 250
    Shutter - 1/80

    35mm
    F2.0
    ISO 1000
    Shutter 1/80

    Rather than create a new thread, after using the ever handy "search" tool and finding this...

    I'm considering renting either a Nikon 17-55 f/2.8G or a Nikon 14-24 f/2.8G for shoot on Paddy's Day. I'm cautiously optimistic that going with the 17-55, I might be able to leave my 50 f/1.8 in my bag...

    Thoughts? Which would you go with, or would you be considering something else entirely (such as the previously mentioned Sigma 10-20)?

    Rent a tokina 11-16. It's pretty fast at f/2.8 and it's my favorite lens right now. It's worth a look.

    I think the 17-55 would give you a little more option than the 14-24, just because it has more of a wide to narrow spread. :D
