I had all of my Nikon equipment stolen last week. I had an F4 with all manual focus lenses.

So I am in the market to purchase new lenses now after being away for about 10 years. The lenses I have previously were great in my opinion, but my insurance company is not giving me the $7000 I would need to replace them all so I need to pick my lenses very carefully. I am looking at purchasing about 5 in all for the moment.

I shoot indoor/outdoor for portraits, fashion, and advertising. Plus outdoor wildlife, landscapes on my own time. I also shoot a lot of parties, candid situations. I need to get sharp images at around 8x6 to 8x10.

Let me know what you all think are the best lenses if you also shoot in these settings.

I will be purchasing an F100/F5 depending on how much the lenses cost me.

thanks in advance,

Ciao, Jerry
