I don't have a passport or enhanced license to cross the border :(
So it looks like my birthday list to myself is a 70-300, 35 1.8, and a tripod haha
I'll tell you how my purchase decisions went:
I wanted a D610, but it was too much (2 grand). I settled on a D5200. I went through a ton of different lenses, all of which I resold: 16-85mm VR (never get that lens!!!), 70-300 VR, 35mm 1.8G, 18-35mm f1.8 Sigma Art, and Sigma 10-20.
I later sold the D5200 and got the D750. Now I just have the D750, the Sigma 150-600 Contemporary, 50mm 1.8G, and 85mm 1.8G. I do want a 24-70 f2.8, or something on the wider end, but I've got what I've got for now. In the grand scheme of things, I think I lost $900 on the resale of my used gear throughout the period of about 2 years.
My advice: Be aware of resale value of lens purchases, and minimize the $$$ lost on resale. You cannot anticipate where you will go, or what you will want when it comes to photography.This post was edited by Canadian_Man on Dec 26 2015 05:08am
