I've got a kit of 4 fine Nikkor lenses, and each has a special purpose: The Beast (28-70/2.8D) for... everything in its range The 80-200/2.8D (two ring) for sports, wildlife, and candids The 60/2.8 micro for closeups, macros, and tabletop work The Button (20/2.8D), intended for wide scapes and group portraits, but it doesn't get used much.

I was glad to have the camera on the front seat so I could document the damage for my insurance company.

I have no fear of the course when it's working for me. View attachment 12240 The 20/2.8 may work out for local travel. The zoom range is pretty limited, but it's very light, and delivers "no compromise" images. And the best part is I get to cheat Lens Lust Disease, cause I already own it 8).
