I have been enjoying my photography with the D800. I have learned plenty new things reading things here and other sites Nikon related. Even Nphoto comes out with simple tips that are a refresher to me. I like to shoot a little bit of everything and I don't do many paid events. I randomly do portraits and of course volunteer at the family events by taking photos.
This year I wanted to focus on building my landscape portfolio, automotive and try to master studio lighting. So I sold almost every "old" cameras and lens that I had and bought the D800 + 24-70 2.8 nikon 85mm 1.8g and 50mm 1.8g while on sale.
I hardly ever take off the 24-70 as it covers a good range and with low light or the sb-800 the results are very pleasing. I really don't like the 24mm end but at 28 it starts getting better.
At first I wanted to purchase primes only but with the sales this was good choice considering the costs.
Im considering selling the 24-70 and getting the sigma 35mm 1.4 and possibly the nikon 16-35 or another lens and then getting the 70-200 f/4.
I used to shoot the d7000 with the sigma 10-20 and I liked the distorted looks and also the wide end. With street photography I like getting candid shots and I would either use the sigma 150mm 2.8 or 70-300 nikon simply because I'm still a bit shy and nervous in Chicago (don't judge me
I been debating if my D800 current lineup is the best or D800+ sigma 35 1.4 Art nikon 50mm 1.8g and 85mm 1.8g a better fit ( future 16-35 70-200).
A little eye opener or some advice may help. I have read and read articles, compared lens and pictures on flickr etc .... but I'm still undecided on the lens choice.
My personal favorite to shoot is Candids for people and Landscape and automotive for everything else.
thanks in advance.
