| p.1 #1 · AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR vs. Other mid-range zooms for DX |
I am about to pull the trigger on this lens, but I am curious about other options in this range that will work well on a DX camera. I am replacing my old trusty 18-70mm lens (from the d70 days) and am seriously considering this new lens (for a d300s).
I travel a lot and want a very portable, inconspicuous lens for city-scapes and portraits of folks around the world. I will eventually move to FX so I am hesitant to by any more DX lenses (thus no 17-55 f/2.8).
Any other suggestions for a good mid-range walk around under $1000 (I am also considering the 24-120 f/4, but that's obviously at the high end of my price range). I currently also bring a 12-24, 70-300 and 105 f/2.8 when traveling so it's that 24-70 range I'm really looking to nail.
The pros for this lens are
• Build (at least compared to something like the 17-55).
• Loss of wide end on DX bodies
• Variable aperture, not very fast
Thanks and Cheers,
