New to this board - so "hi" to everyone!
Hoping for some feedback from people with experience. I am in the market for some new glass. I have a shelf full of film-compatible Nikkor glass...but now shoot Nikon digital SLR. I also have a couple of DX lenses...but am wondering if I should ONLY purchase DX in the future?!?!
I am reading reviews, and Ken Rockwell says this:
Optically all Nikon lenses ever made work great on all digital Nikons. Nikon designs its digital cameras for their lenses, so ignore the discount brands' barking about magic lenses optimized for digital. Nikon digital SLRs are already designed for Nikon lenses and no discount brand could possibly optimize their lenses for every camera brand simultaneously. Nope, no one pays me or sponsors me; these are just my opinions. In this case I agree with Nikon's marketing, even though their latest slogan about "the camera matters" is baloney. Nikon's "DX" moniker just means these shorter focal length lenses won't cover 35mm film, so don't use them on a film camera. All Nikon lenses are already "digital optimized."
What do we think of his opinion? Any truth to it in real practice? I'd appreciate some input!
