Re: Nikon Peeps: 24-120 vs 24-70

I had Nikon 24-120mm f4 in the past but I sold it and purchased 24-70mm f2.8 and never looked back.
Advantages: low light, better build, fast, professional quality glass.
Old but gold Nikon D700 shines with Nikon 24-70mm f2.8

Re: 70-200MM Canon Lens Under $1000

Canon 70-200mm f4 IS and non-IS versions are great in all aspects. Sharp, contrast, dream lens of many people.
My first L-class lens was a Canon 70-200mm f4 non IS on the crop sensor back in 2011.
I suggest you to try to get a Canon glass.

Used Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 VR, first, second or third generation - all perfect lenses. New is expensive. Will be 105-300mm on your body. Top quality, low light sho...

Re: Nikon D750 - what do you think

D750 is a great camera, I got one. You better buy it instead of D780 and save for good bright glass, f1.4-2.8
With D750 + a bright good quality glass you will be ready for even night shots.
Cameras come and go, good glass will stay.
Just my two cents.

Re: Today's equivalent of the Canon 350D?

Perhaps used Canon 5D Mark 2 or Mark 3 in good condition will be the best option if you want high ISO, better autofocusing and overall better performance.
If you do not need a full frame then you may choose any modern beginner Canon DSLR which will be better than 350D.

Re: Polarizing Filter?

For the Sigma with this kind of focal length you have to have a very fast shutter speed but polarizing filter cuts the light and shutter speed comes 1/300 - 1/500.
I personally do not use polarizing filters for aviation photography.

Additional sharpness can be applied in post processing in photoshop.
