New Prime or Smaller Second Body for Walk Around and Travel

Hello all. I posted this in another forum but I realized it belongs here. I decided to rent the Nikon 24mm f1.4G and the 35mm f1.4G to see which I would prefer for a wide to semi wide prime to use on my D800E. Deciding which one I want more is another discussion in itself (honestly I like them both for their merits). Anyway, for the price of either of these I could invest in a second smaller body, like the Fuji X-T1 with a somewhat equivalent field of view lens. It would cost more to go this route but I'm truly getting a more walk around camera and lens. My fiancé recently got an Olympus OMD EM1 and she loves it. It has great ergonomics but I haven't played around with it enough to know if it's for me. Here's the hardest part for me: I love my D800E. So I'm biased towards a prime as mentioned above. I haven't checked out the 28mm f1.8G but I don't have any 1.4 lenses so part of this exercise was to see what 1.4 is like. I do like the 24mm over the 35mm but I think the 35mm is a more ...

i wouldnt buy into a new system just yet.  the 24G is one lens that i just love love and that would be my suggestion is go for it the 24.  its really versatile in a sense that it is the true story teller of a lens.  and it can almost be used macro-like since its MFD is just inches.  you can wait for the sig 24A if you wish...but from what ive seen the Sig A series lenses have a very sterile rendering to them.  not a bad thing but i came to realize how much nicer i like the overall colors and rendition of the nikon originals.

OP: I have faced your same dilemma several times in the past months. Here is a test for you. When you look at the photos from your D800E in, say, Lightroom, do you automatically zoom to 100% to marvel at the resolution? I know I do, with my D800. If that is the case you will never be completely satisfied with a lessor resolution sensor again. Don't kid yourself. I love the Fuji. Had an XPro 1 and the three primes. Yes, it was small and light, but you still have to mess with changing lenses, etc. If I were to get a small carry around camera, it would be the GR. However, I would take it out and regret that I did not have my D800 with me! (I have access to my wife's Sony RX100, and have never tried it.) I have both the 24mm and the 35mm. My advice is to go with the 24mm. It is much more versatile, and plays well with a 24/50/85 or 100 kit. The 35mm, also a stellar lens, is best used when you want to go out with one lens only, or maybe the 35/85 twosome... Continue Reading

It'll fit into your pants pocket (literally; that's not just marketing hype), it's a 28mm equivalent, and the 16.2 mm APS-C sensor provides outstanding images. And I'm pretty sure you can pick one up for well south of the price of a 28 1.8g. Continue Reading
