Re: Why so defensive?

24-85 vs 17-55, 50 F1.8 vs 35 F1.4.

A variable aperture consumer kit zoom with significant distortion and made of plastic is not comparable to a metal constant aperture lens, and the 35 f1.4 is full frame just like the 50.  Nikon doesn't make a directly comparable lens to the 17-55, but Canon makes one that's pretty close, and it's the same price, the 24-70 IS f4.  Nikons closest lens is the 24-120 f4 which is a little cheaper but has a lot of distortion and is not built to the same quality standard.  And that's giving you the benefit of your argument that we must compare a stop faster lenses.
