    90mm 2.8 tamron macro is nice, but not a must have. I 2nd the 85 even though I don't have one yet.

    Beyond the zooms you listed, the 85 1.4 and 105VR are both very good. All the super telephotos are good, but several grand each. The rest of the lineup leaves a lot to be desired...

    even on a crop body they're some of the best lenses Nikon makes, why go with a lens you gotta get out from under in a year or 2 years when you can get a lens you can keep forever?:dunno:
