    I have a D80 and I purchased it with the 18-135mm. I already had a 100-300 so I chose the 18-135 kit over the 17-55 to avoid the gap. I shoot mostly sporting events so I like the two-lens hookup.

    There have been a few threads about lens choices and many of them overlap with each other. Have any of you dumped your wide range lenses for 2-3 shorter lenses to cover the same length? Did you have a big jump in image quality after you made the switch? What about the hassle of swapping?

    I always figured my next lens with be something like 11-16, but now I am thinking maybe I need to get a couple more to replace the 18-135. I am eventually going replace the 100-300 with something up to 400mm so my question is more about replacements for the 18-135. Your thoughts please...

    At first I thought 11-16 as there would be no overlap with the lenses I have already. I don't find many posts from people who have the 18-135 and I wondered what people use to cover the range up to the 100's.
