    Now that I own one I’m telling you... you WILL buy that lens if you test it. I am in love.

    Heading out tonight to shoot some low light portraits with Christmas lights and a cute model.. will post results for you to see tomorrow.

    Now that I have moved from 24 Megapixel Nikon full-frames (D3x, D610) to the D800 and 36 Megapixels, I have become more interested in acquiring a few, very special, very distinctive imager-type lenses; the newish Sigma 135/1.8 is a distinctive imager; unlike the Nikkor 135 AF Defocus Control that I sold off a year ago, the new Sigma seems to have almost _zero_ visible color fringing at wide apertures...something the old Nikkor had at f/2 to f/4 to a degree that made me not want to shoot it at such f/stops.

    Back to the ONE BODY and two lenses question: as much as I did love the D3x, the extra pixel count of the D800 or D810 would make me change my vote to my newest Nikon, the D800...same AF module, MultiCAM 3500, as the D3x had in the D800, but a bigger file, better for crop-ins, and better ISO performance than the D3x sensor had, so my new one body, two lens forever has the D800 and the "old" 28-105 zoom and the 70-200 f/4 AF-S VR-G lens...I've never liked the performance of any 70-200 wide-open, so the f/4 is my choice in a 70-200.

    But, seriously though...this question is a mere hypothetical. I, and millions of photo enthusiasts, and full-ime working and part-time pros could never, ever own just two lenses! Gotta own that glass! 24,50,85,105, 60 macro,90 macro,300/4,etc.,etc.. Got.To.Have.Glass.

    I didn't know you had the 70-200 f/4 VR. That lens, besides the 20 1.8 has been probably best decision I ever made. Nikon hit the ball out of the park on that lens, no question. I love shooting with it. That one stop of difference is nearly unnoticeable.
