Just got back from Japan, carrying around a D300s in a shoulder bag for a month, and my shoulder is still hurting. Looking for something lighter like a D5100, maybe a D3200, maybe even a D7000. Have stuff to trade.

First up, a 35-70mm, 2.8, push/pull zoom (FX or DX). Wonderful lens and was my mainstay for my D700 setup. Recently got a 24-70mm lens so it is now redundant. Usually goes for $350-400.

Have a Tamron 24-135, f3.5-5.6 that can be FX or DX. Got it to replace my DX 18-200 when it was in repair. About the same sharpness as the 18-200, probably worth about $150. Don't see very often but there is a message thread re the lens on the other Nikon Site in their Lens Lust section. A lot of people like it there, I got rid of my 18-200 and kept the Tamron, not sure if that says anything.

And a DX 17-55mm, f2.8, highly regarded but getting little use from me. Usually goes for around $800-900.

All lenses in perfect shape with no marks on the lens or body. Have boxes and paperwork for all but the 17-55. Prefer to trade the lenses...
