I'd love to hear what others think on this too. I know the quality isn't up to my Nikkors and I wouldn't be using it for anything critical but there is some reasonably good glass out there for $600 and their six year warranty is impressive. However, I've never owned a Tamron and maybe someone could suggest a better solution.

I just bought the D700 & am going FX/DX as I have a D300 too.

My walkaround for the D300 is the Nikkor 16-85. Generally, that gets me most shots for just casual shooting. Primarily though, I am focused on landscape/nature and wildlife, and printing on 13x19 inch paper.

My other lenses are the Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8, the 200-400 f/4, and the 24mm PC-E (I also bought the Sigma 300-800 for birds and wildlife).

With the D700 on order, I completed my FX range with the Nikkor 14-24 f/2.8, the 24-70 f/2.8 and the 105mm Micro.

I am very new to Nikon, buying the D300 in April (just sold my Pentax K20D and 6 great lenses to finance the D700 deal). While I love the quality of the Pentax system, their lack of long glass and now, mid-price FX made me decide to go 100% in the Nikon direction.

A high quality walkaround option for the D700 would be the last piece of the puzzle and the 28-300 VC would also work on the D300 just as well I suppose.

After that, I will be looking for a NAS 12-step program!

It's great to be a part of the Nikonian community and I have already found these user forums to be very helpful.
