    Re: Undecided about lenses? Look here

    I don't have experience with those, but they should work well. A 70-200mm would be more versatile, but comes with a higher price tag.

    If you are interested in zooms I would look at the Tamron 24-70 2.8 G2 and the 70-200 2.8 G2. They are both great lenses and they would work indoors and outdoors. I like the 85 1.8 also or the 1.4 D. The 1.4 D is nice and you can find them reasonably priced. A buddy has the 85 1.4 D and I borrowed it now and than before I moved to the Z6. I do not really take macro. I have a 60 2.8 D that I like but I do not use it often.

    You should have a look at the pre-owned market. There are folks out there jumping ship and going to other brands. Many times you can find great buys (not necessary given away), but if you can get lenses you need for about 60% of their initial values, you'd do good. As long as you can check them out throughly. For the use you mentioned, you should start with a 24-70 2.8 and a 70-200. With the D800 you can crop all you want so you might not need a specific macro lens just now.

    Good luck.

    Yes, I am looking to buy used lenses with a 2-year warranty. That should suffice, I suppose.

    OK, I have settled on 70-200 Sigma lens, and now I am just trying to decide between Nikon 85mm f/1.8, Nikon 105 f/1.4 and Sigma 105 f/2.8 Which one of these would best complement the 70-200 choice, for portraits / headshots / macro?
