Hi Steve:

I might pull the trigger on this beauty, which I can’t ignore; it will take me month or so. In the meantime, I have to do a lot of selling, which I hate. However, I will integrate both cameras systems (D700 & D7K) and come down to 10 lenses, my dream! My preliminary analysis is as follows:

D700 & D7000 Lenses:

Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED N IF VRII
Nikkor AF-S 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 G VRII DX

Nikkor - Fisheye DX AF 10.5mm f/2.8G ED-IF

Zeiss ZF Distagon 25mm f/2.8 T*
Zeiss ZF Distagon 35mm f/2 T*
Zeiss ZF Planar 50mm f/1.4 T*

Voigtländer Nokton 58mm f/1.4 SL-II

Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S G ED VRII
Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED-IF VR-I with Kirk LP-45 QR Foot

Macro Lenses

Nikkor AF Micro 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR II
Sigma APO 150mm f/2.8 EX Macro EX DG HSM
Canon 77mm 500D Close-Up Lens


According to my calculations, I might even clear ~ $1,500 including the cost of the 28-300. Therefore, I have a lot of wiggling room. Unfortunately, I will sacrifice the 14-24, but cannot have everything, either. I really love the above lens lineup and do not need anything else. Heck, I will freeze the cameras as well.

The only worry is the high density pixel concentration in the D7K, but I think it should be fine. I’ll wait a month or so, for the reviews. I also have time to think about it, before doing anything.

Best regards,

Hektor

PS: I just added the following. I will pre-order or order the D7K a week after I sell the 14-24, just in case there is a problem in the delivery of the lens. I can't believe how easy was to come up with a lens lineup that I really like, once the choices were there. Before, I was going around in circles.

PS2: I changed my mind. I'm keeping the Sigma 150mm Macro f/2.8. I was thinking of upgrading the Nokton 58 1.4 to the 85mm 1.4G, if I had enough money left over. However, that could be my 2011 project. The problem is that I won't have any more equipment to sell. If you do not see me for a while, is because I'm going to be a bit busy between the "I want to sell" forum and eBay."
