Hello, all....

I am considering moving from an equipment list of film/DX digital to exclusively FX digital. More specifically, I am thinking about selling my F3HP, SB-16, three prime MF lenses, plus my D300, 18-200, Sigma 10-20. I like all this gear, but I find myself using 35mm film very little these days, and the better low-light capabilities of the D700 and the better wide-angle options in FX glass are winning me over. I have this feeling that, if I'm going to make the transition, now is the time -- before I decide to acquire any more DX glass.

My initial thought is to sell all of the above, and start my D700 kit with the 24-70 2.8, MB-D10 (which I never got for my D300), and possibly a 50 1.4G. The 17-35 would like follow later this year.

The only other factor I'm trying to consider is that I'm planning to attend a street photography workshop in NYC this May, and might be using the D700 kit I just described. I may rent a 17-35 for the workshop if I think it's really needed.

Thoughts?
