New to Nikon -- walkaround lens for D7100?
Feb 21, 2013

Although I have a long experience with digital cameras, Nikon has not been in my bag.  Now reading about the D7100 makes me think I may want to join (or at least try) the Nikon ranks.  But I have no experience with Nikon lenses.

My first lens would be a walk around lens.  That means, something in the 24-80mm (35mm equiv) zoom range, with f2.8 being ideal.  I think that means I'm looking for a DX lens, is that right?  Any particular recommendations?

I know Nikon has a 24-70mm f2.8 FF lens (is that FX?) but that is not what I want -- too heavy.  Your suggestions are much appreciated.
