Re: New to Nikon. Need lens advice please (=

Don't spend all your money on a camera. I'd get a refurb or slightly used D700 if I was you and spend my money on lenses. Good wide lenses (free of flare, sharp...etc) are very expensive for FF Nikon. Why get the newest and most expensive body if there is no good lens attached to it?

Your choices are 14-24, 16-35VR and 17-35 2.8. I would not look at other alternatives if I was you.

As for a general purpose lens I recommend the 24-70 2.8, unless, that is, you are a prime shooter.
