Hello everyone and Happy Easter!

Has anyone had any experience with this new lens? I recently purchased a D300 and was thinking of adding this lens to replace my 18-70mm kit lens from my D70.

I rented a 24-70 2.8 this weekend to try out and see if I liked it. After getting over the shock of the added weight, I found I really liked the lens but it may be just too much. I was trying to see what it would be like to prepare for an eventual move to full format which I'm really not sure about now. I really like working with light and easy. (I used to shoot with an OM-1 in my film days.)

So after all that, what do you think about the 16-85mm? Thanks for any thoughts!
