    Re: Upgrade to FX from D7000

    I started off with the 24-120 to replace my 18-140 on my D7100. It is a good all around lens on the D750 but I really did miss the wide portion on the D7100. I use my 16-28 on my
    D750 more than any other lens. I really like the wide angle shots. So the choice of lenses is all dependent on your shooting habits and your budget. FX glass is expensive.

    For sure, I have a 17-35 Tamron FX lens and use it a lot - the 24-70 2.8 is a superior lens but much heavier and the difference on an FX between 17 and 24 is noticeable. Received a Siggy Artsy 50 1.4 for Christmas and love it - works well on FX and DX. Same goes for my 85 1.8. Generally FX lenses are fine on a DX, but you do pay that FX premium in most cases.

    I had some older AF-D lenses that are still good glass and can be had for far less. And they tended to be much smaller than todays - in part because they have not focus motor, V.C. and other bells. Just good glass. I gave these to my daughter-in-law with my D90 as she is interested in the hobby. But good vintage lenses are one way to go FX on a budget. I still look for a bargain.
