I'm considering getting the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 to use on this camera for general purpose photography. Thinking of it as the FX version of the 17-55mm f/2.8 I have for my D300s. That's a sweet lens, but kind of big and heavy (and it was pretty expensive too).
Any thoughts on the D700 paired with this lens? If you have that combination, I'd be interested to hear. This is a chunk of change to spend, so I'd like to hear if everyone thinks it's worth it.
