Grass is too expensive for me tongue.gif

I want a 70-200 f2.8, a D300 and a 10-20 or 11-16 lens. Just 10K plus altogether.

Eat air, not grass.

Update: Oops, forgot I want a 85mm f1.4 too.

All of that already more than 10k wor...

I used to have the 10-22. The performance is ok... But because it is not L, it does not have L built nor L color. Thus the color rendering quality is just like other 3rd party or other competitor offering... I mean normal color la... Maybe a CPL can enchance the color lo...

It is why if you have the cash, go FF and get 17-40L. At least still enjoy L color that can show off...  icon_rolleyes.gif

I thought normally those with FF would go for the 16-35mm f/2.8 L lens? I have seen quite a number of them being used because of the F/2.8 and also the wide area covered smile.gif

Reason are simple... 17-40 is only RM2500... and easily get used one at RM2k or even less

While 16-35 II got no used unit... Price I think RM5000+ You think cheap ar?  sweat.gif

The additional RM3k can buy another great lense like 135L already.

For wide angle, personally I do not need f2.8. Even constant f5.6 also enought makan for me... for my standard la..  laugh.gif

So to me, the only different for the prices is only 1mm.... which I think can close one eye la... Unless you are as rich as empire23 la... than get the 16-35!  thumbup.gif

Well at least I know the reason why they got that lens, the only main reason. F/2.8

Btw, Nikon no 16-35mm f/2.8 L USM lens tongue.gif

how is this lens performance? suddenly a lot of wedding photog getting it..

but from what i see the distortion is worse than Sigma 10-20, no?
*
The distortion is less compared to the Sigma 10-20 but that might be a bad thing at times as there are some shots where the use of the distortion creates a nice angle and feel to them image.

ohh depends on how u look at it.

i pay rm 650 each month for a year. and i get like some money from freelance and stuffs and i can use this money to pay the installment fees.

if i am without the computer, i can't get those jobs done and hence, without the money to purchase the computer or lens.

again, it depends on individual.

if you are like the rest of the members here, or most of the members here, buying top of the range gears not because u need it and because u want it, then u should save the money until u have it then only u buy.

I totally agree with you, thats why I got some of my lenses on the 0% installment and it drives me to hunt out for more freelance jobs to cover the monthly payments. So far so good. Dry months coming up though whistling.gif

Where offer such installment?  hmm.gif

YL Camera, J-One camera, Tarita, Shong Lee, Foto Shangri-La, Fotokem and more.

But most of them have an extra surcharge (~extra 6%) for the 12months installment 0% plan.

Yes it is compatible with FF cameras as most primes are. Watch out for EF-S lenses though.

Sigh I wished nikon have the 35mm f/1.4 lens as well. Definitely worth eating grass to get that awesome piece of lens
