Has anybody any advice on lenses as far as the mid range telephoto region is concerned? Around the sort of 30-70mm range. I have lenses which cover most ranges i.e. long telephoto and wide angle. But i have nothing that covers the 30-70mm range. I have just given my father my old 55-200mm and 18-55mm :-& kit lens as I have passed on my old D3100 to him as I have upgraded to a D7100. I have bought a 50mm 1.8 and 35mm 1.8 to fill the gap where the kit lens covered. But i want to buy a lens that would cover the whole 30-70mm for when i cant take my primes (like on holiday where space is limited). Just for reference the lenses I have are: Sigma 10-20, Sigma 15-30, Nikon 35, Nikon 50, Sigma 70-300.
The type of lens I am after would be something that would be great for landscapes primarily as that is the sort of photography I 'do.' Also the lens would have to be an FX lens NOT DX as when I move to FX in the future then I would like to be able to keep most of my lenses. I was looking at the old 24-120AFD, or the 28-80AFD, but i thought someone may have a better idea here. I unfortunately can't afford the 24-70AFS as I don't have that much money floating around! I would say something that is pre-owned is best for me as price wise I cant afford any of the nicer top end lenses. I think price wise something below the £300 mark would be about as much as i can reasonably lay out (I know that's nothing but cash is tight). (I am not some stupid newbie who knows nothing about photography, I would love a nice fast lens like the the 24-70AFS but I just can't afford those kinds of lenses at the moment, or at least justify spending that much on a lens for the time being)
thanks in advance for any help given
