after months of reading reviews, I am about to finalize my decission on which camera body to purchase (the N80 over the F100 because of cost and functions). The N80 is more than half the cost of the F100, so i have an extra $600 to play with...

my budget is about $2000US (camera body and lenses)

Now comes the difficult part; which lens should i get. I take nature/landscape, macro and some family pics... i was looking at the Nikkor 24mm 2.8 and the Nikkor Micro 60mm 2.8 or the 105mm 2.8, and the 80-200 2.8 zoom

...is buying the best lens the same as purchasing the fastest lens?
