I am thinking about selling all my lenses, except my 300/4 AFS, 200/4 AF Micro and 105/2.8 AFS VR micro.

For replacements, I am considering the following:

16-35/4 AFS VR
24-120/4 AFS VR
70-200/4 AFS VR

This would reduce weight and the coatings on the newer lenses seem to have better IQ. I Find the new purchases to be less than I can get from my lenses based on used prices. The extra money would replace my D200 with additional funds to get a D600 or D800.

I am not sure on the 24-120/4. I do not believe I will miss the extra stop of 2.8.

I even thought that if I sold the other three lenses I am keeping, I could easily afford to switch to Canon, but that is not the goal.

Shoot nature with respect and don't trample it or startle its inhabitants. :)
