Hopefully you will notice that this wishlist of things I want for the camera isn’t actually loaded with lot so of silly lens’ or things I would never use.  Sure a 500mm Prime lens would be very nice, even the 50mm AFS 1.4 Nikkor would be great.  But this is a hobby not a professional income stream.

Perhaps if you are putting together a wishlist for yourself you might want to think about it from this point of view.

Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X (purchased Aug 09)
AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D (purchased Dec 10)
Nikon MB-D80 Battery Grip ( or D7100 version )
Manfrotto tripod (Purchased Nov 11)
Nikon SB-900 Flash (SB 700 version purchase June 11)
Sigma 150-500mm HSM OS Lens ( purchased Jan 11 )
2x Teleconverter ( Kenko Teleplus Pro 300 AF 2.0x Purchased Feb 12 )
Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8D ED
AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 40mm f/2.8G
Cokin U960 Z-Pro Graduated Neutral Density Kit
Solmeta Geotagger Pro ( purchased Dec 10 )
Sigma 18-35 F/1.8 ( purchased Nov 13 )


Now would love a D800e, but my new D7100 is cutting mustard for the moment.

  1. After 200 mm, things get real snvexeipe.THE lens for your trip is really the 200-400 mm f/4, but it costs about 5x your budget. So you may want to look at the 70-300 mm VR lens as a compromise, but well within your $ 1,000 budgetBe sure that you get your new lens in plenty of time to road-test it for a few months before you attempt to use it in the wild
