I have decided to hang onto the D7000 for a while, in part because the functions between the two bodies are so similar. I was thinking of keeping the 20-35mm 2.8 on the D7000 more or less full time and using the others interchangeably on my D610. I rationalise the choice for the D7000 to render the corner softness of the 20-35mm irrelevant. My other lenses are 24mm 2.8 AIS, 50mm AF 1.8, 85mm 1.4 AFD, and 300mm AFS f4.

What do others think of my logic? The other option would be to put the 50mm on the D7000, but I still have the issue of a soft very-wide to consider.

I still need a wider prime for the D610 and while i gather funds I have been thinking mainly of 18mm or 20mm primes.

How would others approach this?
