Re: GOOD General Lighweight Lens for D5100?

thanks to everyone for your feedback. I did go with the 35mm initially, but found that it was too limiting in terms of focal length, so I picked up the Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4. This lens is subsantially heavier and bigger than the Nikon 35, but I am able to shoot just about anything from wide to macro to about 105mm equiv, with excellent low-light results (and I do not have to raise ISO too much on the D5100 - ISO 400 is still pretty great for IQ).

So with any camera there are still compromises (e.g., weight, speed) that must be made. Thanks again.
