Dear fellow Nikonians,
I´m thinking of upgrading to the D800. And I still have a Tokina AT-X Pro 2.6-2.8/28-70 stowed away somewhere...
Has anybody tried that combination? Will the lens be good enough for this very demanding camera?
The lens has served me very well in the old, analog days. But if it isn´t good enough, would the Nikkor AF-S 2.8/28-70 be better? Or do I have to go all the way to the 2.8/24-70?
Thanks for sharing your experiences or your advice.
