I have all older MF lenses from my film days. I was happy with what I used to get with 35mm slides on a FE2. What Nikon dslr will be best for me?: I have the 28mm series E, 55 mm micro with PK 13, 90mm Tamron macro, 28-105 Vivitar, 70-210 f4 series E, 500 mm f 5 mirror. I also have a tc-200 teleconvertor. I will probably get a 20 to 24 mm or a wide angle zoom. I could really care less about auto focus. I would like to do macro, landscape, nature, and lastly some birding ( I will some day get a 300mm). I am mainly concerned about the viewfinder and being able to confirm focus. I have been interested in the d600 but am wondering if I should be considering the d800, etc. I am rather frugal but want the best bang for the buck I can get and consider this a long term investment. This is a hobby, not a profession, but I am detail orientated. What are your suggestions?
