i have been trying to decide for weeks what lenses to buy and its tough when you are starting out in the AF world. I feel as if i need a zoom b/c i travel alot, however, can't afford the wonderful 80-200/2.8 So, my question is, should i get a
28-200/3.5-5.6; 28-80/3.5-5.6; 28-105/3.5-4.5; 70-200 4-5.6; or just get a telephoto 180/2.8 or a 300mm/2.8 (which may be a little cumbersome when traveling)


Also, when i've been looking at lenses, i've been concentrating on Nikkor. But, are there other cheaper comparable lenses? How about Tokina or Tamron???

please advise.
