Nikkor 16-35/4 VRII or Nikkor 60/2.8 G ... my fave is the one I'm using at the time, they are both exactly what I was looking for.

I have all of the 50mm (1.2AIS, 1.4D, 1.4G, 1.8D, 1.8G) ... and none of them have what my 16-35/4 or 60/2.8 do for me. I'll probably keep the 50/1.4G or the 50/1.2 (not decided yet, the 1.4 of course can AF!). If I actually had something on my shopping list then selling the 50/1.2 would be easier. Perhaps I should sell all of the 50s and get the lesn I'm trying so hard not to get (the 85/1.4). But I think faced with the 85/1.4D decision, I would probably take the 105/2 DC instead due to it having something unique.

So, to answer your Q. On balance, its probably the 16-35/4 even though I've been using the 60G a lot more the last few weeks (classic car show and visit to a glass house).

For the first time in many many years I'm considering not having a fast 50!
