Hopefully this post is in the right place. I'm new here and have been reading through older posts and found a lot of excellent advice regarding equipment, but I was hoping you all would lend me your thoughts about gear tailored to my specific use or even unecessary gear that would be a waste.
Its a long story.... But I bought myself a D800 albeit being an enthusiast-amateur at best.
There are tons of things I still must learn to better myself in photography and I have been trying my best to put in my time and dues to do so..
Here we go.
I currently own the afs 50mm 1.8g, afs 85mm 1.8g and an older 28mm 2.8 manual focus nikkor (forgive me, I'm not at home at the moment and it was literally given to me by a friend yesterday, so I can't remember the exact model, could be a 24mm...)
With the recent addition of my first child, needless to say my catalogs are filled with shots of her.
But apart from that, I find myself very interested in street/people photography, roaming around looking for things others miss. But naturally, I would love to gain skills in all types of photography whether it be sports, landscapes, macro, etc, but for the time being (and for the sake of the length of this post) I'd like your recommendations to be for street/people/walk around lenses especially for the "aspiring".
A huge factor for me of course is price. I've saved up about $1000 worth of coins for a lens (so the Mrs. doesnt murder me with future lens) so I would like to keep it in that range if possible, but am willing to save up a bit more if it's recommended to do so, but I do have a trip coming up next month... Soooooo.....hmmm....
Should I stick with primes and add a zoom? Another prime? Wide? Tele?
Ditch the primes and get a "great" zoom?
I understand the convenience of zooms and not missing that moment, but I also love the low light abilities of a 1.8.
In particular I'm thinking about the 16-35 4, or just selling the 50 and saving for the 24-70, although I do like the lightness of the newer primes.
As you can see, my mind is all over the place.
Help me please!
