I was fooling around one day, looking at Craigslist, and saw a Nikon 24-70, F2.8 at a very reasonable price. I went to look at it, even though I had a DX camera (D7000).

Even on the D7000 it was impressive, so much so that I bought the 24-70, sold the D7000 and got a FX camera, D600.

Since then I got a 24-120, F4 which was more convenient when I was traipsing around China and Asia.

I am seriously looking at a 24mm, F1.8.

It’s a fine lens, made at their highest possible tolerance. No aberrations, and very sharp.

The 50 Noctilux has that classic signature. This is a nice modern complement, well suited for portraiture.

I also use it in my medium format, and has no problem resolving 100mp.

For my Nikon D500 my most used lens is the 16-80mm f4. For family portraits the 50mm f1.4
