I agree with JoeR. Like you, photography is my hobby. I see you already bought D600 which means you already interested in a FX camera and have spent $1000 more over a D7000 - again like me, my previous camera was D7000 with kit lens 18-105 used it for a year. This time am more serious and with FX bought 50mm 1.8G for now. Basically, I would like to cover full range from wide to tele. Started with 50mm first as it is a must, next would be a 24-70 prefrably a high speed aperture f2.8. Another lense I am contemplating is Nikon 70-200mm f4 $1000 lesser than the VRII f2.8. This itself is a total purchase of $4000 and maybe a 1.7x tele converter with 70-200 taking me beyond 300mm range. This is what I have planned, hope it helps. Btw, I am planning it slow might take another 6 to 8 months to prepare my preferred lineup. Happy Clicking! Sidenote: do check out Samyung 35mm - cheap lense and making lot of noise, though it is best tested on Canon so far. I am not going for it.

i bought a d600 to upgrade to fx format and decided to up grade my lens selection as well. i got the 300 f4 prime for a telephoto, the 70-200 f4 for a zoom, and a 24 f1.4 for night shots of the stars. the camera came with the 24-85. the 24 f1.4 is kind of specialized so ignore that for now. the three lens combo takes me from 24 to 300 all with good light capability for landscape and nature shots to family and friends indoors. if later you add a tc1.7e you can go to 510 with your 300 f4 and your 70-200 becomes 119-340. i haven't had any focus issues with the 1.7 at all. i do a lot of camping out in colorado and utah and found i always have my zoom pushed all the way out any way so that is why i got the 300 prime. happy shooting.

You might want to add a prime lens such as the

AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G
Once you use the camera, you will know whether you need additional lenses.
Later on you might want to add a 70-200 f/4 for some more reach.

f/8 support is for all I know only available by the metering systems of the newer cameras (D4, D600, perhaps D800 as well). Otherwise you have to manually expose on those lenses.

Not so....I have one! I asked the original question and had to cancel my original order as my chosen outlet could not say when they would get supplies, but I found Service Inc on Amazon had a small quantity, ordered it on 12/2, and it arrived on 12/5!

Question

Tripod collar ring or not? For walk around no, but for D800 w/monopod, which has sturdier structural integrity? Camera or lens?

Weight of lens almost less than body. If body were clearly lighter e.g 7000 would opt for collar. Advice?

Initially, I wondered about the collar too. Personally, having used the lens for a while, I do not plan to purchase the collar. My f/4 70-200 is mounted on a D600 body with the MB-D14 Battery Grip. It balances beautifully and I have not experienced any tendency at all towards "droop" when used with a good tripod and ballhead. Notice from the photos that the collar mounts very near the lens mount , only an inch or so forward of it. I like mine just fine as it is.

This question was directed with respect to the new 70-200 F4. weight 900gram with D800 900gram. Tripod Collar is an option - not included. My question is - whether the tripod collar is better. My guess is as you say. Both the lens side and the body's lens receiver side are adequate to the task. Does Nikon have an opinion?

Question

This new lens fits well in the D7000? Can I use teleconverters?

I bought a D7000 with 18-200mm lens, I would like to have a lens in which I could adapt a tele converter, able to transform it into a tele of truth, for when I need one. For example, in a Safari I intend to do this year. This new lens seemed appropriate, given the price and weight. The questions are: 1) should I get rid of 18-200mm and buy this 70-200mm f/4? 2) This new lens fits well in the D7000? 3) What tele converter can I use?

1. The 18-200 is a decent lens for close-up use, however not a good lens for use as a telephoto;

2. Yes, the lens works well with the D700;

3. You can use a teleconverter, however you will only have AF with the 1.4x (f4 x 1.4 = 5.6). You will have to use manual focus with any other TC as the D600 can't AF at f8, the way the D4, D800 and D600 can. Don't forget your DX body has a built-in 1.5 crop factor.

yes
The 70-200mm focal length range (105-300mm on DX-format cameras) has been the choice of pros for years, but for greater reach, add any of Nikon's teleconverters and achieve 1.4X, 1.7X or 2X magnification.

A wide angle or standard angle AF-S lens in either DX or FX format should work for your purposes.

Depending on your price range, you may want to check out the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G or the AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED. The AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED is also an option but you might encounter distortion to group members that appear at the frame edges when shooting at the widest angles.

For more tip on choosing the right lens you may want to review this article from nikonusa.com:

No it will not replace the 70-200 AF-S VRII f/2.8. It is a lower cost anternative. Main difference being maximum aperture and build quality. Suggest you use the lens comparison feature on Nikon's website:

Question

The question about the rubber gasket on the lens mount is pretty simple yes or no. But if it is no it would be a deal breaker for me to purchase .

I would not spend $1399 + a couple of hundred for the tripod ring if there is no rubber gasket.

For D600, would you go with the kit lens (24-85) + 70-200 F4, or just the 28-300? What are the pros/cons of each?

Go with the 24-84mm, and the 70-20mm F4 or 70-200mm F2.8 if you can.

The AF‑S NIKKOR 70‑200mm f/4G ED VR Lens has a rubber lens-mount gasket, but proper care should still be taken to protect it from harsh conditions or high humidity. Please see this page on Nikonusa.com for information on proper care and storage of your Nikon gear:

Question

Image degredation -- Croping vs. telconverter

I own a D800 and will soon have the 70-200 mm f/4 telezoom in hand.

Perhaps this is a bit of a naive question, but I can't seem to find an answer on-line. I would like to know how image quality compares between one photograph taken with the 70-200 mm f/4 at 200mm cropped so the subject fills the entire expanse of a finished photo, as opposed to a second photograph taken with the same lens at 200mm attached to a TC-20E III 2x teleconverter in which the subject is framed identically without cropping.

I realize that use of teleconverter degrades image quality to some measurable extent, but so does image cropping and enlargement. In the above scenario if the teleconverter degrades the image more than the crop, there doesn’t seem to be any advantage to the teleconverter.

I realize that there are many factors that play into image quality; i.e. definition of image quality, available light, amount of cropping, teleconverter magnification, aperture size, finished print dimensions, printer dpi, number and size of pixels on sensor, available light, camera shake, etc. But if all the other variables were constant which photo would result is a better quality image -- cropped image or image taken with the teleconverter?

It all comes down to your distance from your subject. Example: If you take a picture of something thats about 100 feet away using just the lens at 200mm, and crop the image to the same angle size of another image taken at 200mm + teleconverter = 400mm, from the same spot, the crop images will appear better, but if you redo the scenario with your subject being about 1/2 a mile away with all variable being constant, the teleconverter will produce a better quality image.

If image quality is your concern, and you wants crips images from far away, a prime lens would be ideal.
