I wish I could talk you into that new 28 f/1.8 AFS.

Thanks for the note, I have been looking at the 28/1.8G!  Too many good choices out there!  The 18-35 probably adds more flexibility to my bag with the 28/2 in there if needed.  But, the 28/2 doesn't really get going strong until about 2.8, so the 28/1.8 would add a little more effective WA lens speed and IQ.  Will probably get both someday

Also to consider is that the 16-35 is not that much more $'s than the new 18-35.  Darn, the marketing types make the choices difficult.  Hope the image quality between the zooms is comparable, I would take the $'s and physical size savings over the VR (I think).
