24-70mm f2.8 and 50mm f1.8 redundancy?
Dec 7, 2012

Recently I've been thinking of buying a 24-70mm for my D600 since I did not like the 24-85 VR. However I've read a lot of people saying that this lens and big and heavy and not comfortable carrying it all around.
As an option there is the 50mm f1.8 that would replace the 24-70mm in most situations and with greater convenience.
Would be correct to say that who has the 24-70mm does not need the 50mm and  who has the 50mm f1.8 also not need the 24-70mm?
