@Frank - since you have the setup I'm contemplating (or close to it), what kind of shooting do you do?
My subjects/interests include landscape, indoor/outdoor portraiture, and studio/stock/still. I'm also not an event shooter or photojournalist and I'm starting to feel that a 24-70 is just too much lens (in both size and $$$) for a walkabout. It does great in a studio setting, but so does the 50mm 1.8G and I'm sure any of the telephoto's mentioned would as well. I really want to hone my wide-angle landscape skills, and while 24mm is wide, it's just not quite there for a lot of the images i'm trying to achieve.
@Markov - from what I've hard the 70-300 is really a great deal, but I'm thinking the variable aperture would not give me the DOF control needed for portraits. With the 80-200, I have a solid portrait lens with good compression AND a telephoto for landscape applications, maybe a wildlife shot in a pinch. That's my thought anyway.
