I’m sticking with zooms because the one glaring omission in the D3 is lack of automatic sensor cleaning. I want to minimize the need to change lenses. Since I am new to Nikon, I am going to rely on you Nikon experts in the audience to help me out.
Am I missing anything?
I’ve sold most of my gear already but there is a short list of my gear that’s for sale at:
I’ll also be putting my Hasselblad Xpan and some other odds and ends up for sale next week as I clean out the closet of stuff I no longer need or have decided I no longer want to use.
UPDATE: Several working pros I know who shoot Nikon encouraged me to select the Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8 D over the 70-200 due to extreme vignetting on full-frame cameras with the 70-200.
