2 New lenses... 50mm and ?
Feb 2, 2008

Hi all,

I'm moving a lot more into people shots, some stuff in low-light conditions. As such, I'm looking to buy two new lenses. I've already settled on the 50mm F/1.4, but I'm struggling to pick the second.

I already have a 70-200 f/2.8 to cover the long end, so I'm looking for something wider.

I want something with some zoom, and ideally I'd like either F/2.8 OR VR.

I'm looking at the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S VR DX , but I'm not sure of the image quality from this. I'm thinking it might be better to just put the money down on the 17-55mm f/2.8G AF-S IF ED DX and call it a day.

Also, does anyone know whether any of the newish Nikon bodies that have been released recently would have problems with the 70-200 ? I need to get a spare body, but I don't want to restrict what lenses I can use.

Any advice would be much appreciated!
