Was thinking of just trading my 10-20 for some cash to get either the 24 or 35 prime for wide angle usage, leaning towards the wider since I'm usually shooting 10-12mm on DX so 15-20mm is what I'm looking for, that or my first big lens will be the 14-24mm F2.8

Don't get a 14-24. Its probably the best lens you will ever use, but don't buy one. I'd actually just keep the 10-20 and use it at 15mm+.

A somewhat small review of my new light. I will add more after it gets more use so this is really just a first impression so far. Also includes a short 2 minute test video i shot after out soccer game last night. If i had a tripod i would have held the light off camera rather than mounting it on top but its just impossible to hold a dslr shooting video with one hand and a light in the other. but overall for a fill light im happy smile.gif

Distortion on the 10-20 on DX is significant enough for it to be possibly warranted but the range to be able to use the 10-20 on FF seems to be dependent on settings and scene, will check it out on the body when I get it though

Besides price, there is a substantial difference between the Sigma 10-20 and Nikon 14-24 in size and PQ.

Why do you need a D600? Or a 14-24?

That's a given, heard nothing but praise for it, even able to be sharp in corners wide open

ISO handling and want to get my foot in the door of FX, at the decent price it's not overly expensive and I enjoy shooting wide on my own time. I do paid portraits, etc and would just like a lasting platform for maybe 2.5 years to 3 or more. Also want to dabble in video ever since I played around with some of the gear at two of my friends' colleges, just waiting for Nikon to release a firmware update for the lining around the output to the Atomos Ninja 2 and I'll try to pick one up next year.

You dont need a ninja 2 to do video. And i dont suggest dropping $1000 on a external video recorder if you are new to video. Also the ninja 2 isnt the only one out there if you are dying to burn money on something that you wont use to its full potential. My 2 cents smile.gif

True enough, I've been mulling it over truly for a few hours and going to stick with the D7k, D600 would just be luxury features in the end but going to invest just in FX glass and some accessories, also just remembering how much I disliked D600 AF cluster (my main gripe if there were to be any)

Thinking of getting rid of some of my DX glass, got around $3200 to spend on glass so looking at options, trying to stay on Nikon for it as well, all three sigma lenses have been good to me but would rather have glass that'll stay in my bag for years

Edit: Video wise, I'll probably drop the money on FX body and external recorder after college, so 2 years or so, field recorder will be this December though

If you've got that kind of money to burn, you might consider a used 645D and a P1 back.
