I don't know about "the perfect collection"... but it seems like one should go with the lowest F stop lens they can get and a few different focal lengths - 50mm, 80mm, 75-200mm zoom, and maybe a wide angle.

For my SGpro which will be on it's way soon I've already bought a Nikon 50mm f1.4 and a Nikon 28mm f2.8. Earlier today I also ordered a Nikon 100mm f2.8 portrait lens aswell. That should be enough. I've stuck with primes in order to avoid any zoom focus issues. Keeping it simple. Can't wait to try them out!

Nikon 100mm f2.8
That's a great lens. I find it's equally sharp with my Nikkor 105mm F2.5. I kid you not. Plus the 100mm is compact, unlike the 105.

Frank, thanks.. that's good to hear! This is the lens I've bought - http://shenzhenangel.com/eBay/2003576a.jpg It's an AIS, which I've read were originally released in 1983. Is that much the same as the one you have? I ordered it from the same seller I bought the 50mm and 28mm from. Those both appear to be in immaculate condition so I'm assuming this one will be much the same. The guy did have the 105mm f2.5 aswell, but it had already been sold.

Carl Zeiss lenses on Nikon mounts? And wait, on M42 mounts too? Ohh, me likey.

Quote:
In addition, ZF lenses incorporate new technical advances from the ZEISS Ultra Prime�, Master Prime� and DigiPrime� lenses for motion picture cameras. Like the ZEISS lenses for motion picture, ZF lenses feature unusually high mechanical quality, fixed focal length, very precise manual focussing, reliability, and exceptional durability.

Zeiss has also announced Zeiss ZS, lenses that are identical to the new ZF models except for the mount, which is the older M-42 screw type in the ZS series.

Everything you ever wanted to know about Nikon lenses...
http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/nikkor.htm

After seeing MacGregor's videos here and at dvxuser, I am convinced that wide angles (17-35mm) are even more impressive than the normal and telephoto lenses, or at least a very important part visual storytelling. I dont see a lot of sample footage of 17-35mm, mostly 50mm and up.

I bet this lens would be bad a$$ on a adapter setup. Wide angle and DOF control...

you'd have to break the piggy bank for that one.
