    Hello,

    I am interested in buying a couple Nikon Lens for my D700. I've got a list of some lens I'm interested in, but not sure which to get.

    The first two I'm looking at is the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF AF-S Zoom and the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G ED AF-S Nikkor.

    If I get those two, will I need to buy the lenses below, or will these 2 cover it?
    Nikon 50mm f/1.4 AF-D
    Nikkor 17-55 f/2.8

    Nikkor 12-24 f4
    Nikkor 50mm f1.8

    Thanks

    well this doesn't appear to make much sense....

    there is redundancy in the 2 x 50mm primes plus the 17-55 is a DX lens which is not optimal on your full frame D700...

    so yes...

    the Nikor 14-24 2.8, 24-70 2.8, 70-200 2.8VR are the logical progressions

    if you want to supplement with fast primes the 85mm 1.4 and 50mm 1.4 afs would be the gear to look at..


    enjoy...

    I like some overlap in my zooms, so I'd suggest the 17-35 f/2.8 along with the 24-70 f/2.8. I'd add the fast primes: the new 50/1.4 AF-S and wait to see what might be announced soon.

    Best,
    Helen

    agreed!

    or throw in the 14-24 f/2.8 if you're sadistic (like myself. . .)

    The 12-24mm f/4 is a DX lens. It will work, but get the 14-24mm instead.

    out of the 17-35 and the 14-24, which one would you guys pick? (assuming no price limit, although theyre the same price)

    also, could you use the Tokina 11-16 f2.8 on a d700? is that lens full frame?
    what are your suggestions on using that as opposed to the 17-35 or 14-24?
    i know the price difference is drastic, so i assume it doesnt perform as well. can you get away with shooting professional low light wedding pictures? is the distortion as bad as the sigma 10-20mm?

    Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 is DX, as are virtually all of the zooms in that focal length range.
