Here is my dilema. I currently have a pristine Tokina 28-80mm f2.8 zoom lens. Build quality is great, but she is large and in charge making it not the ideal set up for weight or stealth. I have been debating selling this lens with the following lenses in mind. Nikon 28-105mm f3.5-4.5D, 50-135mm f3.5, 35-70mm f2.8 or maybe the 75-150mm f3.5. I have gone plain stupid with all the choices and was wondering if any of the wise folks out in Nikonians land could help sway me. Also, I am would be interested what your opinion of the lens optical quality would be between those mentioned and the Tokina I currently have. I really don't want to trade down in photo quality for weight or size.

Thanks in advance.
