you're real funny ...i actually sold my 70-300 ED to get my 70-200 (it basically covered the tax on it, lol)....not sure if you can tell yet, but i cant stand to settle....i know ill buy the 24-85 and then want the 28-70....ill just make it easy and buy it first.Uncle Frank said:There's only one way to find out for sure, Yahtzee. Buy a 24-85, and see if it satisfies your lust. If not, you can always
trade up later. Personally, though, I think the 70-200 has spoiled you for consumer lenses :twisted:.
The financially responsible solution would be to sell your 70-200 and replace it with a 70-300. Then your other
lenses wouldn't suffer by comparison .
The premium is much smaller if you compare them by the ounce ;-).Preston said:The 24-85 3.5-4.5 Nikkor is VERY good glass. Much better quality per dollar than the 28-70 2.8 Nikkor.

It does have a changing aperture, which probably is a good deal of the price difference.
