Trolling the forums the other night & saw a lens that I thought I needed / wanted.
Whilst preparing to take my case to the minister of finance, this got me to thinking a bit about my current bag of goodies.
The lens that got me thinking is a Nikon 80-200 AFS f/2.8.
I already have a Sigma 70-200 HSM f/2.8, that I am quite happy with so I don’t really need the Nikon (wallet talking – just ignore this statement for now).
I currently have Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 & 90mm macro, Nikon 35, 50 & 80 and the Sigma 70-200.
The thing is I bought the Sigma primarily for the kids & their sport. Now that they have cut back on their sport I just don’t get it out of the bag. I took it out about 2 weeks back just to make sure it still worked (sad, but true) and it does.
So should I just off load the Sigma or will I miss it.
If I do decide to sell the 70-200, should I just grab an old 70-300 or similar as a long lens and also get myself a wide angle like a 10-20.
Sell the 70-200 & 90 and get a Sigma 150mm macro, that way I have a long lens + macro & I’m not doubling up on the 85 & 90 ( I think I like this option)
Other suggestions welcome
