^- niceeeee

I cant decide on my primes if i went to a FF cam... 28/50/100 or 35/85/150 (The 100 and 150 are macros, I do a lot of macro work..) Somehow 35/50/100 or 35/85/100 feel too close together and crowded...

Zooms are easy! Siggy 12-24 II or the 16-35 and my 70-200 f/4L IS...

Thanks! I mostly shoot primes so I just wanted a standard zoom for those days when I feel lazy. From what I've read the old 24-85 and the new 24-85 VR perform pretty similarly, and for 200 bucks I couldn't pass up getting one.

That old 24-85 was a peach, Very good lens for the money...

I had one of the 35-70 f/2.8s when i shot Nikon, Loved it! I bet its a steal these days

I have always wondered why some Nikon lenses have 2 rows of aperture markings near the mount. Can anyone give me the reason?

Its for ADR, or Aperture Direct Readout which was a feature on many older Nikon cameras, Basically it had a small window in the pentaprism near the lens mount that would reflect the small number into the viewfinder so that you could see what your aperture was set at

Obviously it stopped being necessary when most Nikon lenses were chipped and thus told the camera the selectable aperture range to show in the body...
