i have been to NY many a time now, especially with my sister and niece living there i go once a year. this time however will be the first time i am going without any other family and so will have a lot more time to wonder and take photos. first off i need to figure out what i am going to bring with me. i know i will definately be bringing the D3, 17-35 f2.8 and 85 f1.4. I have decided not to bring the 24-70 because it is not a lens i use much to walk around with. I am going to buy the 35 f2 while in NY so that will handle a lot of the general walkaround duties. The thing i am not sure of is the 70-200 f2.8. it is a big lens and heavy though i know the picture quality is great. i can afford to buy the 70-300 VR which is a little smaller and lighter with a little extra reach, though slower (is this an issue with the high ISO performance of the D3?) i would just like to get some thoughts on this. also, i have been looking around the forums and pics in NY and just wanted to know about taking photos on the subway and train stations and rules for this. and some other off-the-beaten track locations in NY to take pictures would be cool as well. thanks all in advance for replies.
