You have no way to back up what you just said.  I am certain Ken has much more experience with Nikon cameras and lens than you do.  He offered an alternative to using the 24-70mm, a midrange zoom.  That's is exactly what I did.  I use a AF-S 50mm f1.8G for those situations. The consequences of the 50mm is that I have to move around, but in most situation, that is NOT a problem.  Do I want the 24-70mm lens?  Of course, I have the money for it, and maybe I will buy one on eBay after the new year.
