New D700 came with a dangerous virus. It took several months of struggling with my manual lenses and poor eyesight but I broke down and bought an autofocus lens. Thats when the virus got me. NAS.

The lens is only a 24-120 and its the older VR model but wow talk about killer autofocus. I have to check to see if it actually focused its that fast. Now I want more and more.

Still have to stick to less expensive because I havent the income grade for the top of the line but my success with this used lens from KEH has me pouring over websites constanly in a search for other goodies.

One thing I cant figure out is I've never really used wide angle and certainly not wider than 24 but for some reason the siren song of the 17-35 just wont leave me alone. I'm not sure how I'd use it except to take goofy pictures of my long horns and the llamas big eyes, but its all I can think about. I cant even think about the after market brands, that NIkon lens pokes at me constantly.

Is this the way NAS works?
