I'm considering adding another body + FX lenses to my kit and here is what I have shortlisted. Need some suggestions if this is good enough or are there better options?

  • Nikon D800
  • AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
  • AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II

Need to know if these lenses are fine/good/excellent for Landscape and Street photography? I will not be printing anything and will just be for my internal consumption and web portfolio use.

All excellent gear but I am wondering if you really need gear that is so heavy and expensive if you only need it for a web portfolio? I prefer someting a bit lighter and less conspicuous for street. The 180mm is better for reach, my 70~200 being much heavier and also eye catching. A 24~70 is a good choice but I prefer the extra reach, VR and lighter weight of the 24~120mm VR.

The 70~200 is an excellent landscape lens but perhaps less so if you intend to hike a long way first. I like it enough to take it anyway.
