    I bought Nikon's 24-70mm for $1700 when it first came out. Worth every penny.

    From Bjørn Rørslett, a nature photographer and basically one of the most knowledgeable and well respected people in the Nikon community, if you haven't heard of him.

    Don't forget the 14-24. This quote basically sums it up. ;)

    yeah well its hard to reach cost consensus when people throw in zooms, since they are usually more expensive

    Oh, well you should have specified primes. Guess I could have assumed that though.

    Canon or Nikon?
