New to the forum - and new to Photography as well. I purchased my first DSLR earlier this year (D3200), and I am loving my new hobby. I have recently taken some photos for colleagues, friends and family - and I am now finding myself in the situation where people are willing to pay me small sums of money to take photos for them. Mainly taking candid shots of their children, and snapping at their soccer games, etc.
Had I done some more research before diving into this I probably would have purchased a D7000 - providing me with the internal AF motor as well as many alternate choices for lenses. Currently, I have a 35mm f1.8, the Sigma 17-50mm f2.8, and the Sigma 10-20mm. I clearly have a gap in my setup and I am considering a few fast-ish telephoto lenses to make my gear more complete. I say fastish because the announcement of the Nikon 70-200 f4 has piqued my interest and I am wondering how this lens might stand up against it's f2.8 brethren. My budget is about $1,500 to $1,600 and these are the lenses I am considering:
- Nikon 70-200 f2.8 VRI
- Sigma 70-200 f2.8 OS
- Nikon 70-200 f4 VRIII
Of course, I feel like I have "outgrown" my D3200 a bit already - and I do not necessarily want that feeling after buying one of these lenses either. Any input is appreciated!
