You got me wrong on this one. What I want to do is replace the 24-70 with a much more easy to carry zoom like the 24-85. With the money I'll save from the trade though, I'm thinking of buying a couple of primes for different occasions. Say I want to go for some architectural shooting. I now own the 24-70 and a 85 1.8D, so I will shoot with the zoom. If trading for the 24-85 means I can afford a wide prime (which now I can't), why shoot with the zoom? Hope it makes more sense now, though you guys made me consider the 24-120 now, which I will have to give a try to soon somehow.
