I'm a bit confused . . . Now that I've read a couple of Evin's excellent lens reviews, I'm not quite sure about a couple things. Below, in "planning to buy," I just picked the fastest lenses Nikon makes, and chose the manual focus versions over the AF version, whenever possible. Lenses in "planning to buy" are all current-model lenses. Evin's review seemed to suggest, however, that the manual-focus version of a given Nikkor is NOT necessarily preferred over the AF version (in the same focal length/maximum aperture). Am I missing something here?
Also, I didn't realize there was a focal length multiplication factor involved (duh!), so I erroneously chose my focal lengths based on 35mm still equivalents. What is the multiplication factor for 35mm still lenses for RED?
Was planning to buy (before I realized the multiplication factor for RED):
1. Nikkor 24mm f/2.0 AIS manual focus [$599]
2. Nikkor 35mm f/1.4 AIS manual focus [$699]
3. Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 AIS manual focus [$529]
4. Nikkor 55mm f/2.8 micro AIS manual focus [$329]
5. Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 AF-D [$924]
A. Nikkor 14mm f/2.8 AF-ED
B. Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 AF-D
C. Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 AF-D
D. Nikkor 35mm f/2.0 AF-D
E. Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 AF-D
F. Nikkor 60mm micro f/2.8 AF-D
G. Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 AF-D
H. Nikkor 180mm f/2.8 AF-ED
I. Nikkor 18mm-70mm f/3.5-4.5 AF-S [G]
J. Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8 AF-ED
K. Nikkor 70-300 f/4.0-5.6 AF-ED [non-G]
Thanks in advance, for any comments or suggestions.
