    AF-S Micro PC-E 10-600mm F1.4G ED VR II IF NCC SIC SWM and a switch to change to fisheye mode. Size of front lens element can be changed with a dial to suit any size of filters, and mount can easily be unscrewed and changed to suit any mounts. Hmm... Did I leave out anything?

    VR II is too old. By the time this kind of lenses becomes realistic, it should be VR X.

    I think you know what I'm trying to say - use the lens that suits your style and your needs.

    Are you the gungho type of street shooter where u walk up to your subjects and shoot point blank? - any wide angle or 50mm (myself I prefer 35mm)


    Are you the shy type of street shooter who prefers to shoot from far without your subject knowing? - 85mm or any zoom lens longer then 85mm (sometimes depending on situation, I will use my 200mm)


    most of the time i prefer to use my 35mm for street shoot.
    haha oki understand i'm the shy type. =D

    Guess not. By that time you just click a button on the lens and a tripod will appear at the bottom, already of just the right height. Okay maybe a little far fetched

    I thought that's Canon or Sigma... Nvm seems like I got messed up on this one. Anyway that lens has perfect focus so there's no need for that I guess. It works like a rangefinder, except the lens does the reading

    Isn't DC a tool for creative blur than getting perfect focus?

    DC is used to control the quality of bokeh. nothing to do with focus.

    I don't know. It sounds like a tool for focus rather than blur XD

    If my budget was unlimited, must-buy lenses would be every lens that has ever been made. For my lens museum. It would take quite a few years, but eventually I'd get pretty close.
    Meanwhile, I'm quite satisfied with my 17-85, 50 1.8, 55-250. Planning to get a 30 1.4, for my crop body. (My lens "collection consists of new and used, spent a total of around $850-900. Hope this helps.
