Anyone getting by without a "normal" zoom on D700?
Aug 10, 2010

I'm about to pick up a D700 with a 14-24 for some interior work and was curious if anyone has forgone the 24-70 range and just gone with a 50 prime? i ask mainly because i'm curious about the rumored 24-120 as it would be a better walkaround lens for me, more closely mirroring the 18-70 from my d70. i figure it would be some time before that lens is on the streets and more time still to see how it shakes out. i'm thinking i might miss the flexibility of the 24-70 but i've never shot full frame before so i really don't know. i also have a 35/2 prime but i'm not really into changing lenses all the time so i'd more than likely just leave the 50 on if i went this route.

damn these decisions and thanks for any thoughts.
