The three kings of the late 90's were the 20-35mm f2.8 AFD; 35-70mm f2.8 AFD and 80-200mm f2.8 AFD ED. They made a perfect trio. Now the first two been replaced and are only available on the used market. Seeing as you have the 35-70 I thought you may be interested in the 20-35 - it is an excellent lens still - very sharp with good contrast. I use the trio on my D2Xs as my everyday lenses and am very happy with them...

Randy makes some good points and rightly you should consider the 17-35mm f2.8. If you need wider perhaps the 16mm f2.8 may be the way to go.

FWIW I picked up a perfect 20-35mm f2.8 including the hood (which is rare) for about UKĀ£450 a year or so ago...

D3 + 20mm f2.8 AFD + 105mm f2.8 AFD + 300mm f4 AFS
