Here are what I have, in the order of how many photos I think I take with each (all Nikkor except the 8).

18-105

This one I have, but don't use as much as the 55-300.  Perhaps I am missing something?  For what kinds of pictures do you find it to be a better choice?  It is a decent lens, and I have definitely been under-utilizing it, probably because I always want to get closer to my subjects!

50/1.4 AIs

The prime lens question - I had been thinking of a 35mm f/1.8, because of light-gathering and lightness.  But now have to ask the question of whether it would indeed be a good walk-around lens?

24/2.8 AIs

A wide-angle lens would be a good addition to what I already have.  The Nikon 10-24 was suggested, which sounds like a good lens with a nice range.

Thank you for your input.
