I'm going to start carrying my F80s more as a backup to my to D80 and need a lens recommendation. I use either the 18-135 or 18-200VR with my D80 which I know doesn't work with my F80s, so I'm thinking about either a 50/1.8D or a Sigma 24-60/2.8. One is $100 and rated very good for image quality and the other is about $200 and gives me a nice range from wide angle to normal focal length but is said not to be real sharp until it's stopped down a bit. Back 7 - 8 years ago when I was taking photography classes I used and chose the F80s because it imprints the shutter speed and aperture between the frames which is great when making prints. I also used a 50/1.4 ais and either the sunny 16 rule or guessed the exposure. I haven't used the camera in about 2 years and now need a lens, preferably autofocus this time. What would you recommend? BTW, the data imprint is a great feature, to bad I don't print b&w anymore.
