For those contemplating moving to FX but for the price of lenses - Anthony has an extremely valid point that I can vouch for.

When I fist purchased a D800 I was using a 20-35mm f/2.8, 35-70mm f/2.8 and an 80-200mm f/2.8 - the latter two are push-pull for both focus and zoom with one ring. These lenses were in the cases if every Nikon professional of the day.

The IQ difference between these and the newest is there, if you pixel peek or make large images - yet even then you would need the prints side by side to tell the differences. And at some settings on all of these, they are better than the same settings on today's lenses.

Often it is stated that these screw focus lenses are slow focusing. Well ya, if your changing focus from minimum focal length to near infinity. But they are extremely capable on the newer cameras.

I eventually moved to the 17-35 over the 20-35 because I needed the wider angle quite often. The 35-70 I sold and bought a 24-70 (in hind sight I should not have). But it was stolen along with 80-200. I found an excellent 35-70mm so the 24-70mm will not be replaced. And I did move to a 70-200 VR lens (within the last month) only because of a really great deal. The old lenses still are still worth using.
