I have the dilemma of trying to select some good glass for my D7000. I’ve been a bit disappointed with some of the results achieved and concluded that much is to do with my technique but also due the budget lenses I’ve had for several years. Landscapes, architecture and portraits were generally fine but wildlife images sucked. Lack of reach, blurred images and poor contrast abound.
I’ve been working on the technique and results have improved (a lot), but I still see issues that I suspect reflect the cheap glass I’m using.
I’m tempted by the 70 – 200 F4 which seems to offer much of the quality of the 70 – 200 F2.8 but saves a $1000. I’m also tempted by the 300mm F4 with a 1.4 x tele.
I’d appreciate your thoughts!
