I recently posted a request for suggestions regarding the best 3 lenses for a Road Warrior. The response was great and I want to thank everyone for all the valuable insights. I actually decided to purchase 4 new lenses instead of three. I will only carry three at a time, but I will give myself the option to swap out a lens when the need arises. Here is the lineup: Wide Angle Nikkor AF 12 - 24 f/4G ED-IF AF-S DX Mid Range Nikkor AF 35 – 70 f/2.8D Telephoto Nikkor AF 70 -300 f/4.5-5.6 IF-ED AF-S VR Special Purpose Nikkor AF 85 f/1.8D I’m leaving in about an hour to the local photo store to see if they have any interest in matching the B&H pricing. If they do, I’ll purchase the equipment today. If not, I’ll place the order with B&H. I’m leaving for Rio de Janeiro tomorrow and would love to take the new glass with me…..but we’ll see. Thanks again for your insightful thoughts and opinions.
