I got the Nikon D750 and Iím just figuring out what lens work and which ones donít. Unfortunately my favorite ďwalk-aboutĒ Nikon 10-200mm isnít going to work...regrettable sigh. Iím not even sure what I need to be looking for in the lens descriptions. Iíve figured out I donít want any Dx Lens....

Soooo what are you using on your Nikons for a walk-about lens.

Iíve set my goal on the Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 to replace my wide angle. Unless you have a better choice.

Does anyone have any used Nikon Lens youíd like to sell?

Hi Janine, why not just pm or check out the glass other D750 users on here are using? https://www.dpchallenge.com/camera.php?CAMERA_ID=2311

In terms of lenses, every so often I toy with the idea of selling my birding lens - the 300mm f.4 - as I just don't use it much any more. And an 18-105mm f3.5-5.6 but sounds like it won't work if your 18-200mm won't work with the D750.

Iíd like a bit more range but maybe I need figure that out...and they need to me Fx Lens...I have been lurking about on the equipment and profile pages...grin.

Iím just hoping to get more information about personal favorites.

I like the Nikon 28-300 as a walking-around lens. Nice range on my D800.

I also have the Tamron 150-600 for wildlife, though I may need to sell that one. I've developed a tremor and I can't seem to hold it steady anymore (or hold a monopod steady) :-(

For wide angle I have a Sigma 20mm f/1.8 that I love.

And that would be a direct focal length match for the 18-200 DX lens. I'm always afraid of the "super zooms" as they are usually optical compromises. This one is no different. Here is a review that covers the details.

Generally I agree with this statement... the only exception I encountered so far is Olympus 12-100mm. Amazingly sharp and contrasty at all focal lengths, very quick to focus and incredible image stabilization in combination with IBIS. Sorry for an of-topic comment.

I find the Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 is my "go to" lens.

Try one out, first, by renting one if you can.

I havenít used my 24-85mm as a walk-about but maybe I should try...it works fine on my camera.

I was just hoping to have a little more range.

24-70 works very well for my walk about lens tho sometimes use the 70-200 if need more reach

The only proble with this is that the 70-200mm is a monster to carry around!!

Yeah it is kind of heavy but I have got used to it and the 24-70 ainít exactly a feather either

My 70-200 2.8 never leaves my d5 camera body. It is my go to lens. If I need something else, I use one of my other cameras.

I love my Nikon 24-120mm f/4 lens. Professional lens, great quality! Would not want to go out shooting without that lens.
