"RE: D7000 Pre-Ordered"

Hi Steve:

I canceled my pre-order of the D7K, today. I decided to get the 24mm 1.4, instead. I’m not only getting lighter, but also very fast. My future camera and lens lineup will be as follows:

D5000 Lenses

Nikkor AF-S 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 G-VR II DX
Nikkor AF-S 35mm f/1.8G DX
Voigtländer Nokton 58mm f/1.4 SL-II

D700 Lenses

Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED N IF VR-II

Nikon AF-S Nikkor ED N 24mm f/1.4G (to be ordered after selling the 70-200)
Zeiss ZF Distagon 35mm f/2 T*
Zeiss ZF Planar 50mm f/1.4 T*

Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S G ED VRII

Macro Lenses

Nikkor Micro 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR II
Sigma Macro 150mm f/2.8 APO EX DG HSM

I have four lenses to sell and I’m done. I sold the 14-24, already and it is the waiting game, now. I will never do this again. However, I will get down to ten lenses .

The D7K is a fantastic camera, imho, and I really wanted it. However, by getting faster with the lenses, I no longer need the high ISO performance that much. In addition, with the 24mm 1.4 (~ 35mm 1.4 with the D5K) and the DX 35mm 1.8, the legacy lenses advantage of the D7K almost evaporated.

Best regards,
