I live in Italy and I could find no place that could repair my Leicameter MC.
I know of course that there are the red and black dot settings, but in both situation the exposimeter can't read 11EV. The Leicameter MC has been tested by a professional technician that used proper equipment to test the exposimeter, and he told me that the exposimeter stops to read correctly if a value of 11EV is used.

I love Nikon gear. Having said that I am not a fanboy to deny goodies and goldies from 3rd party. From my own experience I can advice for:
1. crop sensor
Sigma 50-150/2.8 - its unbelievable good for the money... great IQ, compact size & weight
2. full frame
24/1.8 - better at f2.8 than Nikon 24/2.8 AF-D. Not a beast in IQ but you can do your job, excepting maybe landscapes
50/1.4 - if you get a good copy this is the 50 you need for weddings & family
85/1.4 - some says that is very close to Nikon 85/1.4 G, other says that is equal to it... IMHO it is better than 85G... Anyhow, it is really great for the money. The cons: is heavy and bulky.
150/2.8 Great for macro and as a telephoto. Is an amazing piece of glass.
