    and 4 flashes, stands, etc.

    I definitely want to take advantage of the MF lenses that I got:

    35mm 1.4
    50mm 1.2
    85mm 1.4
    all nikon ais versions.

    but that is all I have that would fit on a d700. on the d80, I replaced the focus screen with a split prism screen, but I got so used to using the d80 screen that when I had installed the split prism, it wasnt much of a change. at least in daylight situations.

    Im also rocking 11-16 tokina, and tamron 17-50. 1 sb600.

    fucking way sharp, but the dof is razor thin. breath, and you are out of focus. it takes a while to get used to. I've managed to match my breathing with the subject being in focus. I think the bokeh is equal if not better than the 85mm 1.4.

    still debating it. the 10.5 f/2.8 is a DX lens and its $700. the 16mm 2.8 is $1000+, and I just don't know how much I would use it for that much money. Thats what I'm debating on... still.

    For the things I would use a fisheye for, this would be sufficient.

    um its 16mm, the depth of focus is enourmous. its manual.
    you would have to TRY to take shots out of focus
