D80 - Upgrade lenses or body first?
7 months ago

Hi,

I have a D80 and, 24 f2.8d, 35 f1.8dx, 50 f1.8d, 85 f1.8d and 70-300 VR, all of which are Nikon lenses.  I photograph family activities (archery, tennis, horse riding) and aviation.  I generally shoot in the 35 - 85 and 120-220mm ranges. The lenses I am least happy with are the 24mm followed by the 70-300, but I use the longer lens more than the wide angle. The zoom is a pain because it isn't really fast enough and I can't increase the ISO too far on the D80.  The 24 f2.8 just isn't as sharp as I would like.  I can afford to upgrade to a D7100 or 70-200 f4 (or 80-200mm f2.8) but not both. I know in general the guide is glass before body but I am interested to know what you suggest.
