Walk around lens (having 24-70mm)
Apr 20, 2014


I have D600 with 24-70mm, 85mm, 150mm, 70-200mm lenses... and looking for a walk around lens when out and about with family, traveling etc (basically when I don't want to carry heavy load )

I have read many reviews and comparison of 24-85mm VR, 24-120mm VR and few old lenses like 24-85 ED, 28-105mm AF-D... wondering with my existing setup what would be better option? Usually I print 4x6 or 8x10 pictures for other family members and once in a while 11x16, 16x20 for my wall.

I am leaning towards 24-85mm VR, since it's nice compromise on IQ, weight and price (used/refurbished ~$300). I think 24-120mm f/4 is a nice lens too... but it's expensive and don't see big difference in weight (comparison to 24-70mm). If I go with 24-120mm then I have to sell 24-70mm as can't afford both lens Also, I don't shoot professionally, it's just fun hobby.

I would like to see opinion/suggestion from my friends here.
