Alright guys, I am yet again...back to see ya'lls opinions on lenses. I have decided to sell most of my gear except the D7100. I have been successful and all I have left to sell is my 12-24mm. So heres the low down: - I have around $1000 to spend, give or take some extra bucks - I will be getting the Tokina 11-16mm (already decided) - I need a mid-range lens and a zoom lens to accent that wide angle - Landscapes, portraits, family, etc, etc. I'm not sure if I want a prime for my portrait lens or not, because my thinking is I could use the mid-range for more than just portraits (walk-around lens as well). For the zoom, I don't need anything fancy, just using for those occasions where I see an awesome moon or sky, or need a zoom. My original thoughts were to get the sigma 24-70mm and nikon 85mm with the sigma 70-300mm but now that I have decided to sell my 12-24mm, I don't want to miss out on that extra length. Yes, I am a perfectionist so that 16-24m bothers me ... My thought process is, I will be doing occasional portraits starting this spring, when the season picks up. I am also starting a custom wood furniture/decor business with my father, so photos of those pieces is necessary for my blog/website (which I'm sure any lens will do for those,but...) SO all your opinions are appreciated and I hope I am not being "annoying," by continuously changing my mind... HAH.
