I've got an F100 and am thinking about going back to shooting film once in a while. I bought it used with the old 24-85mm zoom and I would like to upgrade to a better performing lens; I didn't find this lens to be that great a performer.

But I've got a question or two: 1) some of the newer lenses have quite a bit of distortion, easily fixed in digital but not so much in film. Which trans-standard zoom has the least amount of distortion? 2) will I get all the lens adjustment controls on a new G lens on this old body?

Has anybody tried some of the recent lenses like the 28-300mm Nikkor and what were your conclusions?
