Im a bit unsure about the 3.5 lens because i really like the DoF of the 1.8 or the 2.8.

Which f/3.5 lens? I like the DoF of f/2.8 and faster lenses, which is why I recommended two of them (the Tamron 28-75/2.8 and Nikon AF 80-200/2.8 (first gen))

Have you guys tested this??

The tamron 24-75 2.8 seems nice but its 1300 usd used...

It's $235 off KEH (used). I was referring to the 28-75 (equivalent to a 18-55/2 on crop cameras), not the new, stabilized 24-70/2.8. The 28-75 gives up a little on the wide end, but otherwise still gives very good image quality.
