I understand the argument about 24 and under stand this and agree but I dont see this as much as a 24-120mm competitor but I see it much more as a Competitor for a 70-200, much lighter, quite a bit wider and yes not 200 but not that far off.

35-150 on a DX camera is similar to a 50-225 on a FX camera.
So it is the DX equivalent of the FX 70-200 :)
And in something faster than the variable aperture f/5.6 zooms.
in testing way to look at it. Then you could pair the 35-150 with any number of 16/17 - 50/55/# to cover the range on DX. OR.... Get a wide FX like Tamron's 17-35 f/2.8-4.0 and have kit that works well for both.

That is the plan, DX camera with:
17-50/2.8 for the gym (basketball and volleyball)
35-150/2.8-4 for the field (football, soccer, lacrosse) and gym shots to the far court.​
Lighting for both gym and field (night games) stink, so having the faster aperture will get us below ISO 12800-25600, which is where the f/5.6 kit lens would be.

The yearbook students (teenagers) don't like carrying the HEAVY 70-200/2.8, so the lighter 35-150 should get more use.
