Ok so as posted in the GD section. I bought an expodisc at the store tonight because I just couldn't wait for the one ordered online. I know I need a bit more patience........well I don't have it. While there started talking lenses. I am debating the 17-35, 17-55 and the 28-70. He had all three. VERY dangerous. I have the 18-200vr and the 70-200vr so just looking to fill that lower end with top of the line. Not a pro but a firm believer in that you have to have the right equipment. Anyway, I digress. Worked them all and loved the 17-35 and was .3 seconds from telling him to bag it up when the 2 year old tells me he has to potty and the wife gives me a look. (we're potty training right now) Completely distracted now as the 3 month old starts crying. Anyway didn't buy a lense tonight.........:frown: but..........gained more insight. That being said, I would like to hear If faced with the same situation and had to make the decision in my shoes, what would you choose and why. I have a D80 w/18-200vr and 70-200vr. Don't shoot anything specific just love taking pictures and trying new things. As always your thoughts are very much appreciated.
