Question Lens advice?

At the minute I've got Tokina 12-24 mm & Nikon 18-70mm lenses, I've been thinking about changing them to the Nikon 18-35mm & Nikon 35-70mm f2.8, would this be a good change over or have i lost me marbles all together

Personally, I would stick with the Tokina 12-24 mm & Nikon 18-70mm, cracking lenses, and invest in a nice 70-200mm.

Re: Lens advice?

Have got the Nikon 70-210mm at the minute, is there a great difference between the 2?

Re: Lens advice?

What about keeping the Tokina and getting a Nikkor 17-55 f2.8?

I really like the 18-70, but don't miss the extra reach it has over the 17-55.

Re: Lens advice?

Love the 18-70 to Dabs, something to think about, is there much difference between the 17-55 & 18-55 not counting the difference in price?

Re: Lens advice?

18-70 is a really good lens. The 17-55 is a great lens.
