I have to agree that the 18-35mm G was a surprise. I have used it heavily for business interiors and exteriors. This was on my D600. Like the previous poster indicated it sweet range is from 18 to about 28mm. I have used it a number of times at 35mm. It is not really that bad at 35mm.

I did have the 24mm f1.4g. That is an excellent lens but heavy. I found that the flexibility of the 18-35mm to be a real benefit.

I also use the 24-85mm. It is my standard lens for the Df and D600. The 24mm end is very good and like other posters have said. If 24mm is as wide as you would like to go then I would suggest that the 24-85mm with VR will nicely meet your needs.

I would like nothing more than to hear that the 24-85 VR is "good enough" as I would probably get it fairly cheaply in a D610 body/lens kit.  Who knows, maybe it would be exactly what I'm looking for. And in the most important shooting scenario for me right now 24mm would be wide enough.  But thanks to everyone on this thread on suggestions for something else.
