Re: Walk around lens for FX & DX

Are you happy with the performance of the 28-80?  If so why change?  You have the 18-35 which is a useful range on DX.  Or, can you mount 18-35 on the D700 and 28-80 on D5100?

Some years ago, when considering an 28-105 AFD for my D700, I mounted it on my D300 and compared it with my 16-85.  The 28-105 was sharper at all overlapping focal lengths.  You could be planning to pay a lot to achieve not much, in my opinion.  YMMV.
