Hi,

I just sold my D90 + Nikkor 17-55 f2.8... and bought really cheap D700 (only 4k pictures taken, cost 950 euros = ~1k$).

I only have fast primes now, Nikkor AF 35mm f2 Nikkor AF-D 50mm f1.8 and Nikkor AF 85mm f1.8. I really want some "standard zoom" for walkabout lens.

I managed to get REALLY cheap Nikkor AF-D 28-80 f3.5 - 5.6, cost only 20€ for me (~25 bucks). Now I also have change to get Nikkor AF-S 24-85G IF-ED for 180€, but I don't know if this change is worth of it?

Sure, AF-S with SWM is faster and more quiet than AF-D, but what you guys think about these two lenses?
