Looking for Nikon lenses 2.8...
I'm looking to pick up some nikon lenses for my FS100. Like to look at the 70-200mm 2.8D, a 35 or 50mm and possibly something in the 20-70 zoom range. If you have anything, let me know. Need it to have a manual aperture ring.
i'm not sure about the fs100, but I know that for the af100 (and all m4/3 cameras), you can use the newer nikon g lenses if you bet a special adapter. It lets you stop down the lens, but you have no idea of knowing the number. Not ideal, but I know that some people use this technique when they want to use a newer lens for whatever reason. Also, I have heard great things about the 35mm f2 ais. ebay and keh are good places to buy, and it never hurts to wander around at garage sales and or craigslist when looking for older glass in general
if you want a 70-200, check out the push-pull 80-200 f4 or f2.8, the f4s are like 150 and the 2.8 is like 400-500. They will pretty much be the same as any other long zoom tele and be much cheaper.
the tamron 17-50 is a solid lens too, along with the tokina 11-16. a nikon 24-70 would be sick too, but theyre pretty expensive.
