I'm still waiting on consignments to sell, though I'm probably going to take matters into my own hands soon to get the more expensive gear sold. This leaves a lot of time to research replacements. I've been focused on prime lenses for a few years, though semi-wide to semi-tele are the style of primes I prefer. 50mm and 85mm primes are a given.
Does anyone have the Nikon 16-35mm f4 VR lens? How do you like it?
I was thinking of that instead of a 20mm f2.8 and 28mm f1.8 combo. I should eventually have a DX and FX camera that I plan on using together.
Positives and negatives for the zoom:
- VR with a wide angle lens seems potentially useful for hand-held video, but I can't find any example clips. I'd be interested to see if this can work with video and if it helps.
- More range of possibilities compared to the two primes.
- Looks like it is a big lens
, so packing it might be a pita as I use two cameras a lot.
- The aperture is f4 maximum, but with wide angle, that isn't much of an issue. Although, missing out on the potential of that 28mm f1.8 would be a shame. The 20mm f2.8 seems kind of meh, but not much else in that range.
