Travel combinations?
Apr 9, 2008

I have a D200 and 12-24 Tokina, 17-50 Tamron, 50 1.8 Nikon and 85 1.8 Nikon.

The issues I have are overall weight and constant changing of lenses when the 17-50 (main lens) isn't quite long enough!. I have had a long look at the 18-200 Nikon but it appears to be soft at the longer end?

I am contemplating selling the Tamron and the 85 1.8 Nikon to get new 16-85 vr Nikon. or just selling the 85 1.8 and replacing it with 70-300 vr and then just live with the extra weight and lens changes (albeit, with more range).

My next trip is to India for 3 weeks and I am constantly deliberating on the best combination for walk about photography.

any assistance/ advice greatly appreciated.
