So as I mentioned in my introduction thread, my apartment was broken into and all of my camera equipment was stolen (I will state it again here too; if you rent and don't have renter's insurance, get it! It's cheap I swear!), so I have to start over and I've decided to go Nikon this time.

I'm settled on the D600 (since that's what made me decide to jump ship), and I'm looking for a ~3 lens system to go with it. I am pretty much sold on the 105 f/2.8 VR micro lens, but if you want to tell me how that one holds up (especially compared to the Canon 100L) I'd really enjoy that conversation =)

I'm probably getting an 85/1.8G and then I can get either the 24-70 F/2.8 OR a non-nikkor 24-something (I had a Tamron 28-75 2.8 before, but I would really like something a step up) and then a something-else. Or I might do the same thing with 70-200 zoom (and get a wider prime probably). Exactly which avenue I still have to choose, but basically my entire knowledge of hardware is canon-based so I know the gems and the good deals on that side but I'm woefully uninformed here. So, anything I should really know?
