> What are poeples views on the Nikon 14-24 and 24-70 versus Nikon's new primes?
What are your values? If it's flexibility, there's no comparison; the zooms win every time. If it's low light speed, there's no contest: the f/1.4 primes are as much faster than the f/2.8 zooms as those pro zooms are faster than the disrespected consumer zooms. If it's price/performance ratio, the new 28-50-85mm f/1.8 primes are pretty amazing optics at prices that are in a completely different price category than the 24-70/f2.8. On the other hand, the 14/f2.8 prime is an older design that doesn't hold up as well.
