I recently sold my D810 and replaced it with a D850.
My wife and I are having our first child so I’m looking to put together a lighter weight wider coverage setup.
Currently I tend to travel with an older 35-70 2.8D, 20 2.8D, 50 1.4 G or 50 1.8D and 70-300 VR sometimes the 20 and 50 get dropped in favour of the 24 1.4. Both are on either on the front of either the D8XX or my D4 which all fits into a small Lowe Pro sling bag with a travel tripod and a couple of flashes, cam ranger, filters, batteries stuff.
This unfortunately leads to a LOT of lens changing which is probably not going to fly with a kiddo. The 35-70 is a little short as I really like the 24 end. The 70-300 also tends to lack reach sometimes and is a little soft out long.
I’m hoping to get this down to something more reasonable and was wondering about people’s opinions on the 24-85 VR combined with the new Sigma 100-400 as a two lens solution with an option to carry the 20 for wife and a fast 50 for the darker situations? Or would I be better off with the 24-120 f4 Nikon or go to an all Sigma all the time 24-105?
Or do I really just say screw it and go 28-300 get a 300 pf and a teleconverter for the long end and keep the 20 for the wide?
The struggle is real! Anyone have thoughts?
