    I saw the thread by JamieR and it intrigued me. Since his is a Canon specific thread, I figured I'd get a Nikon one going. Great idea Jamie!


    So as the title states, what are your 3 favorite lenses Nikon users? I'd get it started, but I currently only have my 18-200 but the rest will be on the way throughout this summer starting with the 70-200 f/2.8 and 24-70 f/2.8 when B&H gets it back in stock.

    Is this the top 3 that I own? Type of question?

    Of the lenses I own.

    35-70 f/2.8 AF-D gets used the most.
    20-35 f/2.8 AF-D second
    80-200 f/2.8 AF-D (2nd gen) tie for third
    105 f/2.8 AF-D tie for third

    I only have 1 of those fancy AF-S lenses but its a kit lens that came with a D40x. Only camera it's been on.

    Like how I stuck a 4th lens in there. :mrgreen::mrgreen: But, they do get used about the same.

    Top 3 I own is easy since I only have 3 :D

    1. 35-70 f/2.8 AF-D
    2. 50mm f/1.8 AF-D
    3. 18-105 f/3.5-5.6 AF-S G

    Coming soon is a Sigma 18-250 to replace the 18-105 however.

    Lol...I've consolidated and don't even own 3 lenses anymore. My only two are

    Tamron 17-50 f2.8 (love this one)
    Sigma 70-300 APO (great for Macro's at f/12-f/18...not great for much else for me at least)


    Top three that I'd like to own

    Tamron 17-50 f2.8 (love the picture quality with the small size)
    Nikon 70-200 f2.8 VR (80-200 f2.8 would make me plenty happy though)
    Tamron 90mm f2.8 Di AFII (should have this within the next couple of months)
