In a previous post I had requested for primes to carry on an arctic vacation. Thank you so much for your responses. I need your help once again: Just a preamble before the question. 1. D200 bit the dust 2. D80 has intermittent battery issues. 3. D70s, nikon here cannot clean a filthy sensor. 4. my granddaughter left key marks on my 20/2.8 5. my 35/2 has oil in the blades ( 3 copy..oooovvvverexposes ) Good news, the vacation is back on track. Loaner D200 has become available and the d80 can act as a b/u. Seems my zooms have to be put in service. Suggestions invited for: 12-24 or 17-35 or 17-55? 85/1.4 or 105/2.8 vr or 70-200 ( ouch !! )? 28/1.4 or 50/1.4? or 18-200? and be done with it. This is a photog vacation. Please, please don't pair the 17-55 with the 70-200, I cannot manage. Are 2 camera bodies necessary? plan is visit sweden, arctic circle, cruise down west coast of norway. Grateful for your advise. I am going nuts!!
