I'm looking at a Nikon AF 24-120mm 1:3.5-5.6 D Lens
Anyone familiar with this lens. Is it a good match for my D200?

Yes, it works well. I had one and only found it limiting for me because it wasn't wide enough for an everyday lens. It isn't as good as the newer f/4 VR version, but its still pretty good. I still think the 18-70 is a great lens for everyday on a D200, and cheap, or even an 18-200. That way, you hardly need to change lenses.

My Canon 100-400mm IS, rarely off my camera, its a great walkabout lens useful when im doing my patch surveys.

I've just sold my Siggy 24 - 70 and replaced it with a Canon 24 - 105L. I can see this lens spending a lot of time on the camera, it's fantastic.

17-50mm f2.8 Sigma. I now use this as my standard lens on one of my Nikons. Looks good, works well and the pics produced with it can be superb.

My Sigma 10-20mm f3.5 is rarely off my EOS 60D these days. It is such a brilliant lens for landscape photography and I would be lost without it.

Tamron 18/200 mostly but I love my old SMC manual focus lenses particulary my Pentax 50mm 1.7 is a big fav of mine.

Canon 300mm f4 on the camera all the time when out walking and I carry a Canon 15-85mm just in case a scene takes my fancy.

Nikon 12-24 F4 occasionally. The rest are split approximately evenly among my Nikon 17-55 F2.8, Nikon 300 F4 with or without 1.4xTC, and Nikon VR 70-300 F4.5 - 5.6. I also carry a Nikon S8100 10x with me whenever I don't want to put the DSLR's at risk such as while kayaking or small-boat sailing.

Oh yes, a man Who makes perfect sense, for me it is 600 mm in winter or the 500mm when it is very dark. And the 200mm micro nikkor in summer.
Only on holiday or in town I need a wide angle or tele zoom.
So I had to take the two above lenses and the two 2.8 zooms to Malaysia . And a toothbrush and a spare set of washing.

How peculiar AdrianTongue

I have both of these and the job in hand dictates which I choose regardless of the seasonWink

To choose one it would be the Canon 100mm f2.8L IS, Its so versatileSmileSmileSmile

How can a 100mm prime qualify as "versatile" lawbert ? I have the Canon 300 f2.8 but would hardly carry it around as a walkabout lens due to its weight!

Not being sarcastic my the way, just curious?

Adrian and I both love the little birdies...feathered variety obviouslyWink

Theres more than one way to approach the subject of little birdies, I love to do inflights and the 100mm is perfect for this, but patience is the keyWink

You have a fine lens there in the 300mm 2.8 but as you say its not a walkabout lens, even more so if its a MK1Wink

The 100mm allows crisp sharp images and with a little field craft to get exceptional results....its none to shabby at portraits eitherWink
