ON Holiday Duty, bored, not much trades flowing in..Sitting at my desk juggling my work and surfing CS...then..it just suddently occured to me that what is the one damn gd lens if you die die have to choose for FX (D700/D3/D3s/D3x)..

Hence started this thread for survey. Merely to cure my curiousity~;)

Come on FX users! share with us which is that one lens u can't do without!

Current DX users : should you be interested in upgrading in the future also welcome to share your thoughts :)

Due to # of poll options restrictions, only can list out 15 of the most commonly used/popular lens among fellow Cs'ers. Happy polling!

And may i lead the pack first. Can't live without my beloved AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED :lovegrin:

And happy long weekend ahead!Cheers!

For me, It will be tossed up between AF-S 17-35mm f/2.8D and AF 85mm f/1.4D... :)

Edit: 17-35mm is the one i will choose.

The DC lens not that practical for the rubbish I've been shooting (at home) lah. Haha.

My Vivitar 135mm f/2.8 actually sees more action than the DC lens cos it can focus really close. :think:

Yea, see you next Friday. Just look for the gina with slightly long hair and that'd be me. Shall bring my Nokton too to let you try then.

I go for 17-35 f2.8 as well, as 75% of my shots are taken with this lens.

For jobs, it has to be 14-24mm f/2.8 and PC-E 24mm f/3.5. Don't make me choose, they do different things.

For my own stuff, the 24-70mm f/2.8.
