Thanks for the compliment, Alexander !
I'm the lucky owner of the Nikkor 14-24 ... I eat wood and grass for a while (better for my weight) and I'm happy ;o)
With such a camera I couldn't do the half of the way ... I've got the Nikkor 70-200 VRII too, and Voigtländer Ultron 40mm between the two monsters.

Absolutely (almost 2.5 kg => soon some more work for my osteopath) !
A question if you permit : which lenses did you give to yours ?

I was a software developper, and I chose vegetarism one month ago, but it was in my heart for a big while ...

At the moment I'm using Nikon 50 1.8 G, 16-35 VR, 28-300 VR and Samyang 14.

They all have their strengts / weaknesses.

The Samyang is easily the sharpest all over and I really love ultra wide angle. If 14 is too much one can easily crop up to 21mm equivalent with very good quality for reasonable print sizes.

The 16-35 is very nice for handheld indoor shots, especially in poor light. The lens has bent focal plane (field curvature?) so I often find that everything is in focus indoors, but for landscape when focusing at infinity I often get parts of the image out of focus at infinity if I don't stop down a lot or zoom in.

The 28-300 has a wonderful range and is actually very sharp in the middle, but if looking closely the sides lack sharpness even stopped down. I've shot very sharp images handheld at 300mm at insanely low shutter speeds.

The 50 is fairly small and light as well as very sharp, but still the sides are visibly less sharp than in the middle even stopped down (if looking closely). I almost never use this, because I'm not that fond of the normal focal lenghts. I prefer either wide or tele.

On my wish list / or thinking about buying list:

- I'm thinking of finding a better sample of the 16-35 VR.
- AI / AIS manual 135 lens or 105 2.5 (I love the 135mm field of view ever since I got an old analog Pentax M with 135 Takumar)
- 105 macro VR
- 35 D, 50 D, 85 D
- 70-200 f/4 (I tried this together with the 28-300 and for reasons unknown I got sharper images with the 28-300)
- Zeiss 21, 35, 50

I love the 16-35 range (I had smth similar with my sharp Tokina 12-24 on D7000), perfect for catching huge monuments as well as street scenes.
But I can't complain about the 14-24, so sharp, with the incredible crop abilities of the 36K sensor of the D800.
I've had the Samyang 14 in hands for an afternoon, I loved it fav.me/d5uorbs

70-200 range is a blessing too, especially with 2.8 aperture.

I agree with you about the hole between them (for me from 24mm to 70mm), it's not a big problem.

But I would like a nice 35mm (Sigma f/1.4 ?) especially for sharpness and light/dof abilities with a 'normal' focal.
A 85mm with the same opening should be nice too.
For now, my Voigtländer 40mm is really good, if you can find the focus (fav.me/d6da6u7)

I would like in my wishlist a good macro lens (Nikkor 105, Sigma 150), would like to test some rings and even invert a lens, to see.

Don't feel to need more for now, I remember I did with a 24mm, a 50 and a 200 when I was young, it was a lot of fun.

Sometimes it takes me a long time to answer, please apologize ...
I liked your analyze and comment, thank you Alexander !

About macro: I'm thinking of getting the Tamron 90mm with image stabilization instead of the Nikon 105. According to tests at DxO mark the Tamron should be much better. It has also got 5 years warranty.

About the 16-35: I left all my Nikon gear at Nikon Service Center to get them calibrated with my camera, and after that the auto focus is better in the 16-35. They also checked the lens for errors, but they say it was perfectly OK, so I guess it was just a calibration that was needed. Also the 50mm focuses so much better now that I can confidently use it at 1.8 (earlier I had to use it at 2.8 to get sharp result). So I can certainly recommend calibrating your camera with your lenses. It didn't cost anything either.

The Sigma 35 seems to be very nice indeed, incredibly sharp according to tests and also quite nice colors. Perhaps you've seen the rumor about a new Sigma 24mm, and even a 135mm? I prefer 24 over 35, so that made me think about waiting. I love the 135mm width.
