Okay, I admit it–I am a full-blown techie who loves gear, gadgets, and electronics. I’ve torn computers completely apart and rebuilt them. I have a PDA and an iPod. I am on my third laptop and I love all the digital photography gear I can get my hands on.
Nikon doesn’t make it easy of us gear-heads. They have so many cameras and lenses available these days that I know I cannot possibly have it all. There are some items that are on my short list, however. I am currently saving for a fast mid-range zoom lens–the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 AF-S zoom lens. I currently use the 70-200mm f/2.8 for most all of my wildlife and sports photography. Some day I am hoping to save enough to buy my dream lens–the Nikon 200-400mm f/4 zoom lens. In the meantime, I recognize that I need a fast mid-range zoom lens for portraits, landscapes, and other general use applications. I thoroughly enjoy the fast f/2.8 on my 70-200mm so I am anxious to match this on a more general purpose lens.
I am still saving and the lens is currently out of stock at B&H, so patience will be key. Yeah, I like photo gear and I hope to be adding a new piece of gear to my camera bag shortly.
