Assuming you mean zooms and miderately high cost isn't an obstacle: 35-70/2.8, 28-70/2.8, or 24-70/2.8.

Probably the 24-70.

Yes. The D200, D300, and D700 basic controls are based directly on those of the F100. Not much has changed in that respect over the years.
>Has anybody tried some of the recent lenses like the 28-300mm >Nikkor and what were your conclusions?
Not me. I personally go for a fast aperture pro zoom when shooting film, because film has less high ISO flexibility than digital.
