Re: A few newbie questions

Congratulations on your gift, certainly a nice one. I would keep the 18-105. I don't think you'd see that much of an improvement on the 16-85 that it would be worth the extra investment. You'd be better off putting the money elsewhere, for a kit lens the 18-105 is a pretty nice lens.

Most people when using off camera flash use the built in CLS system and have the built in flash fire the off camera flash, but I believe the sc-29 af assist light will still activate even on camera. Others might want to chime in on that because I haven't used that particular combination.

There is no real limitation on the 24-85 on a DX body other than it'll give a more cropped DX view...somewhere around 36-127. Many people like to buy FX lenses in general in case they do make a switch in that direction eventually.

Others will probably have a little better take on this.
