Currently thinking of just starting with the 80-200 2.8D and a small-medium tripod for use on travel and hikes and possibly a 50mm 1.8 or 1.4

Just my 2cents, but I think selling all your gear just to move to fx is a waste. Consider upgrading your current lens lineup and replacing them with fx lenses then add the camera later on.

The way I see it now is, you have a well balanced kit right now. Selling everything to start fx means you start over. Instead just start buyin fx lenses and replace the dx lenses. You still have an overall rounded kit and then later upgrade to the d600 in 6months or a year when the price drops to $1500-1700. That way you're never without and you still get the camera cheaper after demand dies down.

If you're just starting off messing with video, I don't really think you need a $1k video recorder. That 1k is better spent on lights, external monitor, microphones, tripods, support rigs, etc etc or heck even a gh3.

Like I said, going for FX lenses instead, 80-200D and a used 24-70 F2.8 are looking good to me, however video gear is a resource I have available to me thanks to friends,etc, the recorder would just be for my own use if I did get the D600 in time. Thanks for the advice as its what I'm planning to do tongue.gif

Haha my bad then. I must've missed a few pages. Also consider the 24-120mm f4 and the older 28-70mm f2.8

I had the 24-120mm and it was a surprising useful lens. I personally didn't mind the 1 stop loss, the 2-3 stop gain in the vr made up for it. I switched over to Canon about a year ago because of the better support for video on the canon side. Just throwing it out there, have you considered the switch as well?

Heres a thought: medium format ANALOG. Fantastic fun and a hell of a lot cheaper than whatever FX stuff you'd get. Especially the Pentax 6x7 system.

Yah the 24-120 F4 I considered, might be best bet for video lens and a good walkaround, would get after the 2.8s, and yah the 28-70 F2.8 might be my first purchase as there's some decent used ones on sale atm, the 80-200 can be bought whenever since its still produced. As for the switch, nah not so much, primarily a photo guy with a little bit of interest in video when time allows for it, prefer the ergonomics and features of Nikon over Canon after I handled a T3i, 60D and 7D for a little bit.

My friend just bought a Mamiya Rz67 Pro II, the older style of shooting and the controls are charming but would want video option and smaller form (dare I say it) for daily use.

its your money but again i strongly advise you to steer clear of buying an external HD recorder. you will see no benefit from it nor actually gain anything significant unless you start shooting professional corporate or commercial videos with a full crew and not doing solo video production. just looking out for you, the money is better off invested in a lens that is of the same value or even getting something better like the new 70-200

Listen to this man, he has many lbs of brain power when it comes to video.

Also, Canon has begun enforcing MAP (minimum advertised price). The 5D3 went from $2899 to $3199 overnight at B&H; 5D2 is back up to $1799 after rebate, and even the 600EX-RTs went up about $20. I has a bit of a sad. That's okay though, I think I found someone selling some 600EX-RTs for $500, might be taking a couple of those.

The 5D III looked appealing but a price jump even by that margin looks like a bad move on canons part and yah external recorder wouldn't be nessecary, doubles as an external monitor though if I remember correctly. Pretty much settled on a used 28-70, new 80-200, better tripod and bag and a different strap, should have my bases covered with that stuff, 14-24 would be next lens but sometime later next year and then a body to follow in time. Should have the kit I want by the end of college
