Looks like our Red will arrive before any of the Canon mounts are shipping, which again means that I won't be able yet to use the lovely Contax lenses that await our camera, which again means I have to get one Nikon lens (or Tamron, or Sigma, or you-name-it) to bridge the time.
Basically I need a Nikon zoom lens, that covers at least something widish up to something longish, i.e. 18-85mm. Which zoom can you recommend - it does not have to be the best performing in the world, just something to get me started on the RED, without raising any frustration. A must is the ability to set the f-stop manually, which probably kills any of the super 18-2x0mm lenses. Alternatively 2 or 3 fixed lenses.
Thanks for any input.
(If anyone wants to sell their RED zoom for a very, ahem, competitive price, let me know :) )
