    I'm thinking about switching to nikon again :noes:, soley based on the fact that I'm pretty fucking poor right now, so the ability to go to the thrift store and pick up old MF Nikon lenses that I could use on a D300 would be :bowdown:

    OMG you are so wishy washy

    choose one and shoot! you dont need alot of lenses. Just one

    I primarily use my 5d with a SIGMA 24-60 2.8 for almost everything. its lighter than my 28-70 and i really cant tell teh difference other than AF

    I have my 24-70 f/2.8 L, but want something with a shallower DOF. :noes:

    If I could afford it, i'd get a 5d, but I really can't. :o

    seriously, ditch the most overrated lens as of recently, get a Tamron 17-50 and a 50 f/1.4 or f/1.8

    pre ai lenses are dirt cheap and you can get them converted ;)
    stick with primes though, old zooms arent really that great
