OK guys I need some opinions to share with a friend thats visiting. I gave him my opinion, now he wants more info. So here's the deal:
He wants to get new equipment, and only wants NIKON Gear. He shoots his Kids in sports, and the occasional AHL game and loves Landscape photograhy as well. Now he's only been digital for about two years, and has OK gear. But he is determined to get better gear, and likes the D300S, and the D700 for FF.
Now before we all get into the old, "get the D90 or the D300" discussion I see so much, I tried it and he is not interested in either, he wants the D300s and the D700...."this is where I kinda just stared at him for 5 minutes and said, then why in the hell ask for opinions???"...Oh well.
So two Questions I guess, any recommendations for him on those two cameras and lense combo's????, and who has a Baseball bat I can borrow to hit him over the head so it sinks in and this doesn't take forever.
I told him the following for lenses:
50mm f/1.4 AFS
14-24mm f/2.8 for the D700
70-200mm f/2.8 (VR II if he can wait) for both cameras
70-300 VR f/4.5-5.6 for walking around
24-70 f/2.8 for the D700
Now I'm sure there are other options, he is a nikon NUT!!!! So maybe he's crazy, jury is still out on that one, but he has saved and has lots of cash to spend. So what do you guys think, Help a NR member out!!!! He's driving me NUTS and my wife is going to throw him off the deck soon for me.....Thanks G/G
