Thanks. I will miss the sheer flexibility of the 17-55 2.8. What I won't miss is the fact that I have to feel a slight hesitation in bringing it wherever I go, dusty or not! I will have zero hesitation with a 50 mm 1.8 and can bring that thing anywhere . Heck what is the point of me getting the heavy weather sealed 24-105 if I have to worry about it getting sand in there with a repair cost that is 3-4 50mm 1.8's! I love the idea of just shooting dirty and anywhere with the 50 mm 1.8, stopped down to 2.8, where the sharpness and lack of halo-ing in broad daylight will really be nice!

What will be annoying is more lens swapping but I think I'll get a portable for zoom flexbility and high FPS and wide angle or not missing a shot opportunities! Actually I kind of like the Nikon 1 out of most small portables I've tried.
