Exif Tool Revisited

Lately, I’ve been seriously considering switching platforms from Canon to Nikon. Specifically, to the Nikon D300. And, I have the lens choice narrowed down to either the Nikkor 17-55 f2.8 or the Nikkor 24-70 f2.8.

So, I decided to run the numbers again to see which would be a better choice based on which focal length I shoot most.

Phil Harvey’s Exif Tool is the way to check that.

Turns out that over 76% of my shots are between 17 and 55mm. Whereas only 66% are between 24 and 70mm. Of course, I adjusted for the 1.6 to 1.5 crop difference.

For longer shots, I’m considering the Sigma 100-300 f4.

So, if you’re unsure what your next lens purchase should be… check the stats from what you’ve been shooting.
