these pensive moments. My wife has these strong urges to be by water. I tell her it's a primitive instinct....the flow of water stimulates the production of eggs ....thus preserving our species....at this point she hits me!

thanks Chong Lee ....yes it was an affectionate "hit" . By the way these pictures were taken with the 17-55 f 2.8 that I rented for month to see whether I should buy or not. Am now still wafffling between that and the 70-200 mm..F/2.8 vr. I haven't made up my mind yet as to what kind of pictures I want to take. How do you like your 17-55 ?

The 17-55 is really a compromise between the 12-24 and the 28-70. Although I do find myself missing the long end of the 70mm, I am really happy with the 17-55. The only problem is, I'm usually at the two extremes (17 and 55) 75% of the time!

I also had a problem choosing between the 17-55 and 70-200. For me the choice was clear, the 17-55 was a definite need while the 70-200 was a luxury. My 85 f/1.4 will be coming in soon and after that all my money will be gone to saving for the 70-200. I'm glad I got the 17-55 though, there are absolutely no regrets. (Oh what I would have given if Nikon made a light grey color of this lens :( )

If you get a sharp copy (which most of them are, pretty good wide open too) you'll love it. Whilst heavy and big, it's a small price to pay for amazing optics that'll aid you in the future. My $0.02
