70-300 AF 70-300 ED
80-200 mm ED 2.8
AF-S 24-85 mm ED 3.5-4.5 G
AF-S 17-35 mm ED 2.8D
AF-S 28-70mm ED 2.8
AF 50mm 1.8D
I mainly shoot B&W now, though I do like experimenting with both color and B&W in Photoshop. It's time to make the digital move now that film is becoming harder to find and get processed, I don't do my own processing for various reasons, and scanning film is very time consuming. In short, it's easier to deal with pure digital files nowadays, especially since digital photography has come a long way.
Now i understand better your choice for a full frame...D700 fit perfectly those AF-s lenses system. Plus those new AF-g lenses are more fragile than ever even if they're made for digital purposes, i rather keep AF-S 17-35 mm ED 2.8D ,AF-S 28-70mm ED 2.8 those as for a beginning.
I've been Nikonist for a long time either. Working mainly with the F90 & the X one...and F100 one...loved my FE-2.
i've used the D80 with the 18-70 AF-s also and my analog AF-d lenses mounted on too.
The result was quite stunning with AF-d short lenses.
I love photography but sometimes in life you have to broke yourself. I did it.
I've sold all my Nikon bodies, lenses and gears last year...
And surely when better times will comes again, will head on for a full frame digital, as D700 's coming an insterresting choice and back too, an F100 body. I better know now which lenses are the one i want to shoot with.
Nice Graphics on your website....!
That's the last shot i did with the D80...
