Re: Looking for a good walk about lens for D800

My m.o. with the 24-85VR/D800e is to overframe by 5mm or so when possible and crop off the soft borders in post.  Which leaves about 24MP with sharp edges.  None too shabby.  That way I have a nice inexpensive, light and short lens that doesn't bore a hole in my shoulder after a few hours.  The unit is very sharp and contrasty out to the borders and has very nice VR which allows a handhold down to about 1/20th.  Can't go wrong with the 24-120 or the 24-70 for that matter if you're willng to lug them.
