I was just talking about the whole camera and lens issue with a friend out here who is a professional and a Nikon fanatic. I had a chance to get a whole bunch of Canon lenses, I shoot a Canon, and he brought up the fact that the new lens are not just communicating, but, that the coatings on the lenses are now optimized for the sensors in the cameras. He was strongly suggesting that old lenses are not a good route for a new camera, and beyond that, with the exception of highly specialized shooting, you do not need a lot of lenses.
He did a lot of food shoots for restaurants and food publications, and he said he really relied on his prime, a short zoom and a long zoom, that is just three lens, and he said you could get away with just the short zoom if you wanted. I listen to him, because, well, his shooting is better than mine.
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
