Quote:But on my DX camera it will be 35 to 105?


however you stated earllier that the 17-55 on your dx was just too short.... therefore on a full frame camera the 24-70 will also be too short.... yes it will be longer on your dx camera,, but when you upgrade will you go back to not liking the lens again due to shortfalls in range?

p.s. i have the 17-55 f2.8 on my D300s and find it ideal for most situations... if it doesnt have the range, then i use my 70-200 f2.8? What situations are you finding the range a limitation?

Quote:Len if you read the thread, being offered half the price for the 17 - 55 is something always worth considering

I have read the thread Grin
600 PE is reasonable as distinct from good provided both transactions are done at the same time.
600 is a lot to pay now for a moderate upgrade now - especially if Nikon announce an upgrade for more pro lenses to the new A/M switch at next months Photokina.
When working "light but pro" at events I find the D300/s, 17-55, 70-200 and TC14e plus an occasional 2-3 steps forward or back to cover the 55-70 "gap" works well.
