| p.1 #6 · Nikon Landscape Kit - Former Canon Shooter |
I also shot Canon for a long time (17-40 & 70-200)and moved to the D600 this past winter. I am in a similar kit building situation to you, and I have the 50 and 85 as well. I have been researching a wide lens for months and I had settled on the Tokina 16-28 until the new 18-35G was released. Based on all the reviews I've seen, the 18-35 makes a great landscape lens and stopped down on a tripod it preforms as good or better than similar options. No, its not as good as he 14-24 but its a better match for the D600, I think. As far as mid-ranged zooms, I never liked using them. Since you already have 28-50-85 with excellent optical quality, I'd just get the kit lens for snapshots. I don't see the point of having the 24-70 and primes in the same range, seems like overkill. My kit will be 18-35, 50, and 85 until I eventually get the 70-200 f/4 VR. If I was you, I'd get the 18-35 and instead of the mid range zoom, just get the 70-200 f/4.
