    Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX Micro 85mm f/3.5G ED VR is a very good option for the DX body but the 105mm just offers more in terms of both short term performance and long term possibilities (as in if you wish to shoot with a FX body as well in the future).

    they sure are a great list... but not recommended for a d90?

    just kidding

    I agree on the 85/1.4 too, not that i have one but it'd be superb to have. wanna buy all these for me

    I also thing youd want to choose lenses that are FX too, rather than limited to DX. A bit of future-proofing, so, not sure the 12-24 DX lens can stay in either

    Well unless you go with the 16-35, you're going to have the monster 14-24... I got a pretty good price second hand for my 10-24 DX which served me very well. I'd consider ditching the 24-70 in favour of a 35mm 1.8, save yourself $1500 and not lose *too* much (depending on your style of shooting of course).

    Looks pretty good.

    On DX though you have a little dilemna I suppose. 50 is quite long, 20 not that wide.... although that makes a great combo for both DX and FX without having 2 sets of lenses

    yeah, Ic like something wider than 20 that goes FX and DX, but not too keen on the 14-24 $$$ wise. Im stuck on that one....it has to be Nikon. Wouldnt mind a fish either

    i'm loving the 16-35 f4 - makes a pretty nice walkaround lens too, is smaller and lighter than the 14-24 and takes standard 77mm filters.

    Hmm, I think anything over 300mm are for specific specialized use, not really a must have for a general all around kit

    All you guys only have Nikons and no Canon? The Canon Lens Thread has no reply at all. Interesting!
