    For me it would be D850, 24-70 f/2.8 and 70-200 f/2.8. For STARTERS! I could never stop at just 2 lenses!

    My ideal would be
    Nikon D850
    Nikon 24-70mm 2.8G
    Nikon 70-200mm 2.8E

    So if I would be able to justify and replace my wonderful Tamron 70-200mm 2.8 VR with the new Nikon version I would have my ideal set up but I think its close enough and really I don't need the Nikon version, the Tamron is good enough and then some for my needs of it.

    You've got some great 1980's lenses listed there! The 300/4.5 Ai-S was okay, I owned one and used another pool version of it,hard to focus fast with it on anything moving but built like the proverbial brick waste disposal facility; the 300mm f/4.5 ED~IF was better, and more compact, and has that astoundingly fast, feather-touch internal focusing mechanism that allows manual focusing with amazing speed and accuracy even on fast action; these days Nikon's new 200-500mm autofocusing zoom is pretty popular, and it might be (I stress it might be) the next long lens I buy.

    The allure of the 50/1.2 has never caught the fancy of many people, but it is uber-fast,for sure.

    Looking forward to seeing some pictures out of the newly-acquired 500mm Tele-Tessar you recently got off of the e-Bay site!

    Agreed. I’m regretting having sold my Tamron 150-600 and I want something similar.. I’m thinking the 200-500 May be the next addition to my bag.

    I met a fellow at Pier 39 in Astoria, Oregon, on the mighty Columbia River, and he let me use his Nikkor 200-500 on my D610 to shoot a bunch of test files...I was greatly impressed by the files I shot with it. Seems to me like it could be the "one long lens" solution for most of the fair weather months of the year, now that Nikons have such amazing higher ISO performance.

    I am thinking about heading in the Pro Photo Supply, to see the all-day Sigma representative show, but am afraid I might drop $1399 for the new 135 f/1.8 ART lens...so, thinking about NOT going to the demo day...watched three on-line reviews of the 135/1.8 this morning...

    Regrettably I was born in the wrong decade, but now I get to buy glorious 80's gear for a fraction of the cost. The 50 1.2 and 300 4.5 Ai-s came to me in a package deal, both near mint, from a local antique shop for $120. Ill agree that the 300 is not perfect but on my D3300 its great for birds in the summer and cheap enough that Im ok bringing it onto the beach with me near sand.

    The secret to the 50 1.2 is not its speed, frankly at 1.2 the depth of field is so shallow its hard to use and with modern ISO ranges its not super necessary. But... at F2, 2.8 and 4 its sharpness is second to none. There is also something about the glass that renders colors in a very true and satisfying way.

    Im hoping to get the tele-tessar out soon. I have encountered an issue whereby my ball head is a bit small for it so I think im going to need to up my tripod rig to something more serious. I may look for an old Bogen with a tilt head that can handle the weight better, off to craigslist!
