Venting Frustration - No 24-105mm L equivalent!!
Feb 17, 2009

I almost feel like I have to have both Nikon and Canon systems. I love my D700 and it really gets the job done in low light, color overtones are great. Love it! When I use it in a studio or on assignment I always use the best glass 24-70, 70-200.

Few days ago decided to start using it as a travel camera instead of D90 - cannot think of a good lens! I need something versatile, has VR and still good image quality. Basically Canon 24-105mm IS L.... There is nothing even close to that for Nikon. I even thought of getting a used 5D just for that reason.

Frustrating! Can we drop 24-120mm VR, and replace it with some better quality lens. If people are spending $3000 on a FX body, it makes sense to spare more than $500 for the glass.
