You have no way to back up what you just said. I am certain Ken has much more experience with Nikon cameras and lens than you do.

And you have ways to to backup what you just said? Do you see KR shooting each Nikon's personally? AFAIK he did review products which he didn't own in the past. And how are you so sure my Nikon experience is less than his? Do you know me the entire life? I am not saying I do, but prior to this post, what you said is also speculation.

He offered an alternative to using the 24-70mm, a midrange zoom. That's is exactly what I did. I use a AF-S 50mm f1.8G for those situations.

As I said, each lens has its own purposes for. If 50 satisfy your shooting needs, chance is you don't need the 24-70. I've seen plenty of pros using the latter one for events and weddings.

The consequences of the 50mm is that I have to move around, but in most situation, that is NOT a problem.

Then by all mean stick with your 50. For many others this could be a problem. ie: wide angle indoor with limited space.
