Getting the final equipment ready for my trip to the islands.
Taking the D610, 16-35, 50 1.8 and 70-300vr. I feel this is a good range to bring, but a little concerned the 16-35 is a short range lens BUT again I love WA.
Question: I had a D300 and a 16-85 and it was my walk around setup 90% of the time. I have a Think-tank size 40 case "not version 2" and it fit my D300/16-85 perfectly.

I just got my 16-35 and it fits a little snugly in my think-tank case 40. Does anybody know it the ver 2.0 of the think-tank 40 is bigger in the diameter? with the 16-85 being a little wider diameter it’s a snug fit.
does anyone have an idea for another brand of carrying case similar to the think-tank? I love the way it looks, carries and the flap that protects the screen so that the straps don’t scratch it.

Almost got the 24-120 and a prime 20mm, it might have been better setup/carry around 80% of the time. I am a sharp-aholic and from what I've read the 16-35 is sharper then the 24-120 in general, thus the reason for the 16-35.

I was quite satisfied with the 16-85 I had on my D300, and I'm sure the 24-120 would be sharper then it was.

Final question----return 16-35 and get the 24-120? Just looking for comments

Pearl Harbor----16-35 and 50mm "will carry the 50mm in my pocket" or 24-120 again just looking for comments.

Thanks for any info!

PS--I'm probably reading too much, brain overload.
