I can't stand the 18-70 build quality, but I just can't justify buying a 17-55. I want a DX lens that falls in-between. Do you think Nikon could build such a lens just for me?

There is no such thing.

You need to get the 17-35/2.8 and the 35-70/2.8.

But paparazzi don't make a living off landscapes, do they? Just get the 28-70/2.8, and forget about that wide stuff 8).

I would rather hope that Nikon would focus some attention on superb quality DX primes with AFS. They just got scooped by Sigma with the 30 1.4 and by Canon with their 60 HSM macro for the cropped format.

I don't see what's so great about the Canon 60mm. It can only be used on EF-S mount cameras. At least the Nikkor 60mm can be used on all Nikon mount bodies :wink:

Frank, I saw that thread last evening. The quality of both was great. I am gonna get the 28-70 2.8 shortly. Thanx again
