Now upgrading lenses/equipment

Now that I have a D7100, I am upgrading some of my equipment to take advantage of the image quality that it produces.

Sold: 18-200mm (consumer level lens), 80-200 2.8 (good but upgrading), Tokina 12-24mm (also good, but want newer version).

Also sold: D200 body. Goodby old friend.

Buying: Tokina 11-16mm 2.8, Nikon 70-200mm 2.8, along with a second D7100 and now my D300 will be backup.

Keeping: 17-55mm 2.8 (does an adequate job, useful range), 35mm 1.8, 85mm 1.8, Tamron 70-300mm (does a surprisingly good job on the D7100).

I do a fair amount of commercial work for my clients (I am a marketing consultant), some weddings, architectural work, family shoots, and quite a few volunteer community events. (Just finished a large mayors' breakfast event, in a dark room, using the D7100 at ISO 3200, which turned out acceptable!) The above equipment works well for me.

Note:  Put ISO3200 together WITH a VR lens and that is s real winner for low light work!

Anyway, for general information. Some of you may be going through the same thing.
