my plans for shedding weight while maintaining quality are nearly complete.  Sold my 70-200 2.8 VR for the new 70-200 f4, and sold my tokina 16-28 for the nikon 18-35.  I am now saving 2.6 pounds in hiking weight from those 2 lenses.  the 70-200 f4 has superior IQ to my old 70-200 2.8, and the 18-35 so far looks very comparable in IQ to the tokina, with the benefit of less flare and the ability to use my ND grads again.   Im feeling pretty good right now.  I think i may try seeing how i like using just those 2 zooms with the 50 1.8 in between, rather than my 35-70 2.8.  That would save me another pound.

I'm with you on the 70-200 f/4. I am also getting the 18-35, but in my case I am thinking of getting rid of the Nikkor 16-35, which I have never much liked. I have the Tokina, and will definitely keep it, since it is wonderful at 16mm (unlike the Nikkor). I will be testing the 18-35 vs. the 16-35 at 18, 20, 24 and maybe 35; but from the reviews, I suspect I will be happy. I have used VR on the 16-35 a bit, and might miss that; decisions, decisions...
