    I had kit lenses with my D80 and D300...and sold them all on ebay after I got the Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8. Amazing lens! Rock solid. Great images. Yes, pricy, but well worth the money for me.

    Couldn't have said it better myself. I long for the D3 (or D3s for that matter), but with three batteries and the MB-D10 in my bag, the move from D300 to D700, along with $300 rebate, seems like a...

    I owned the 18-200mm VRII and had it on my D300. Once I got the 17-55mm f/2.8 the 18-200 went to ebay. Yes, the 18-200 was good "all around" lens, but it just didn't do what I wanted a lens to...

    Been eyeballing the 17-55mm 2.8 for a while. Seeing prices in the $900-1050 range (? strange how they are still holding their value so well...new ones cost $1199).

    Anyway, found an auction selling...

    Yes, at this time in my life the 24-70mm f/2.8 is out of my price range. Love my 50mm, but often find myself backing up to fit all in the frame. The 18-200mm is good all-around lens, but just not...

    600 not very limiting, just knowing I'll need backup flash for wedding photography. And the 900 offers more power and flexibility. The 600 will be used as backup and remote flash.
