Hi!

 

I'am currently (semi)switching from pentax APS-C to Nikon FF, I would like to get a D750 + lenses. My light and small family photographing kit remains the Pentax KP + small primes and a travel zoom.

 

I would like to switch my "professional" kit to Nikon FF, so I need a 24-70 F2.8 and a 70-200 F2.8. I've choose the Tamron 24-70 F2.8 G2, and I'am hasitating between the Tamron 70-200 F2.8 G2 and Sigma 70-200 F2.8 Sports. Weather resistance is important for me.

 

For primes I'am much less confident, but my candidates are the Sigma 35 F1.4 Art, Tokina Opera 50 F1.4 and the Nikon 85 F1.8G.

The Tokina has similar IQ as the Sigma 50 F1.4 Art, but it's weather resistant. What are your opinions about the AF with the Tokina?

 

I'am not realy interested in ultra wide/longer telephoto lenses, I had both with the Pentax, I rarely used them.

 

What do you think about this kit? What would you choose if you had nothing now? Thanks!

I would say that Tamron is a litle better with weather seals compared to Sigma, so I would go with the Tamron 70-200.

 

I have the Sigma 35 1.4 Art for my Pentax gear and I think it's fantastic, but...it's not weather sealed as you pointed out.

The new Sigma 70-200 F2.8 S is weather sealed also.
