Delia, those are beautiful images. I've been considering putting my Canon 70-200 2.8II up for sale and replacing it with that Nikon.
Now that you're done with your 85. 1.4, I'll take it.:)

Rick, the 85 1.4 G is really nice. :)

The 85 still has the weight advantage. Besides that I prefer the 70-200 as well.

Ahhhh, Thanks Rick, Yes the 85mm 1.4 is more practical, since the 70-200 weighs a ton. Feels more like 2 at the end of a long wedding day!

Anyone have experience with Pocketwizard FlexTT5 with the D800? I use them with D700 and I got mixed result.

Got my used 70-300VR off Fredmiranda. Ad said it came with bag (no box though). I get it today and there is no bag. Send him a PM asking if he could just mail it in a regular envelope. Responds and says that it turns out the bag was for a 16-85, not the 70-300 and he forgot to take that out of the ad before I bought it. :confused:

But otherwise this lens is soo much sharper than my 55-200VR. Very happy with the lens itself. Can't wait to get out and try it outside of the backyard.

Check eBay for the bags if you want one, they go cheap. Better yet go to B&H and find the Pearstone case for it, I like those better than the bags.

Ah, hell. I got the "maybe I should get a Nikon" bug again.

I'm looking at possibly grabbing the common combo of D5100 with kit lens and the 55-200.

I have a 200 dollar credit with Best Buy and the combo they are selling is $799, which would make it $599 after my credit.

I wonder if I can make up the difference selling my T2i, 28-135 USM IS, and 50mm 1.8.

What I'd really like to do is go full frame. In that situation I'd get the 5D2 with 24-105L, but that's really stretching my budget and I can't justify it as an amateur who really doesn't have the extra dough.


I wish I didn't have this nonsense (Nikon thoughts) on my mind, but is it possible that the Nikon D5100 has better image quality and low light performance than my T2i?


What's your thought>?

Mike,

Why not grab a 5dc? They are selling for around $700 and offer fantastic image quality. Unless of course you need video....
