    It could happen. Well I have a day to myself tomorrow and I am going to drive up to a great little camera shop and see about getting a Nikon 17-55 DX:noes:

    It's a bad ass lens. Kinda big and bulky, though.

    Stays on my camera at least 60% of the time.

    i am going to try and pair my bag down a bit.

    the 17-55 and the 80-200 would be permanent fixtures. the 24-120 would get the boot, as would the 18-70 so in the end i win and get a finer piece of glass that nicely compliments the sharpness of my 80-200 2.8

    im saving for a midranged zoom. just a toss up between the 17-35 and the 17-55. the 17-35 my friend is selling for less than a grand, so it's definatlly cheaper than the 55.

    I keep tossing around the idea of selling the 28-70 and 12-24 and replacing them with the 17-55...but I keep pulling away because I'm addited to the 12-24DX. My work is shifting towards landscape/nature so the midrange is just not as useful as it used to be. Let me know how you like it!

    The 12-24 and 17-55 is a GREAT digital combo. Throw into that a 10.5mm fisheye just for fun, and you've got the wide end covered, to say the least.

    The only problem with the 12-24 is it's an f/4, which limits your indoors options.
