To Nikon or Not to

I am new to this field can anyone and I am a modeling photographer. tell that substituting Nikon Lenses (Yuck Costly~!) with Sigma or Tamron will work good. Or I am going to loose quality. I have a set old Nikon 200mm and 50 to 70 mm lens. Secondly in my opinion prime lenses deliver much better quality but Yuck~again they are costlier……….

Re: To Nikon or Not to

I see no-one has answered yet so I'll give it a go. You say you are a modelling photographer so I presume you will require top quality glass and if that is the case you will probably have to go down the Nikon route.

However, if you are not a pro shooter Sigma and Tamron make some very good high quality lenses. You really need to define exactly what you are looking for e.g .do you need a fast f2.8 lens, do you require weather sealing, what focal length you want etc etc

As to the prime v zoom lenses question, primes are nearly always going to give better image quality due to the fact that there is less glass used in their construction and you are wrong in assuming that primes are more expensive. A Nikon 50mm f/1.8 or f/1.4 can be picked up a lot cheaper than the 17-55mm f/2.8, all are excellent lenses and would suit what I think you need them for.
