Best three lenses for DX body?
Nov 3, 2010

If you could have any three lenses (but only three lenses) for a D300 (or any Nikon DX body) and price was not an object, what three lenses would you go with?

Let's assume you shoot a mix of landscapes, portraits and sports along with regular family shots (home and vacation).

Do you go classic pro zoom like 17-55, 70-200 and 200-400?

Do you get something wider and skip one of those?

Do you get a prime in the mix? If so, what do you give up to get a prime?

Would you go 70-300 instead of 70-200 and then either go with a long tele prime or something super wide?

Would you skip the 17-55 and go with 24-70 instead?
