How long took you to build up so many lenses panos_adgr panos_adgr ?
First of all I apologise for answering so late.

Well it took me some time. It took me 2 years for the current equipment. I had equipment before. But I changed it. I had also some USSR lenses which I gave them away and mainly 2 copies of mir 20m/n 20mm f/3.5 lenses, one m42 and one nikon F plus one jupiter 21m 200mm f/4.0mm m42mount. I had also a Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 ex and a nikkor kit lens 18-55mm with a Nikon D90 a sony a6000 and a Nikon D7200. But I upgraded to the above equipment starting 2 years ago. I regret for selling my first Nikon D7200 and I bought it again with the Nikkor 18-105.
So as I mentioned above my current gear was implemented in its current variety the last 2 years including the lenses.

No problem panos_adgr panos_adgr . I see, you achieved very good collection within so short period of time. I’ve learned a lesson, never to sell my equipment. Because once it’s sold, you will start to regret it.

Yes it is a good equipment investment and quite costy. But I haven't finished yet. I still want a wide angle zoom and at sometime in the future a tele zoom. The wide zoom is something I need for my landscape photos.

I want a telephoto lens too in my kit, I have 70-300 L, but is not really a telephoto. I want something at least 400 or 600mm

For me a 70-200 lens is more than enough. And I'm sure that I will not use it too often.
Are you doing also nature / bird photography?

Yes. I being doing birding and landscape too. I have 70-200 IS II L too. But that's not really a right lens to shoot birds or doing proper wildlife.

Have you check this lens from Sigma? It's not the cheapest one but it's worthe the price from my point of view:

Sigma 150-600mm f5.0-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary

panos_adgr panos_adgr I'm really impressed by your colleaction. Unfortunately I had to change all my plans about new lenses because I had to pay so much money for my car this year. I addition we bought new mattresses and we was in Poland for one week.

So I haven't any money left for new lenses. That's really a pitty...

Thank you Helix!
It was hard to upgrade to this equipment. I did it with patience and careful steps.
