I already own a 105 mm AF-D Micro and a friend of mine told
me buying the 80-200 was overkill for the money. He said if I bought the 180 I'd get better images from the 105/180 combo than the 80-200 due to light fall off with the zoom. Is he wacked in the head?

I know the primes won't allow me the flexibility of the zoom -
yet my wallet has gotten quite a work-out with the lenses I've
purchased recently.

I'm interested in a wide range of photography. I want the 180 for portrait work...yet I know the zoom is best for travel and photojournalism.

I'm going to Italy in March and want to know if buying a zoom
now would be best. Otherwise I'm packing: 24mm AF-D, 50mm AF-D,
105 AF-D and the 108....

Any suggestions would be great.

THanks
