Hey there...

I have question in regards to two DSLRS and two lenses. I currently own a Nikon D70 with a kit lense and a 70-200 2.8 VR. Now, here are my questions.

1) I am getting ready to purchase a D200, however, I am also going to purchase the almighty Nikkor 17-35 2.8 as my new primary to replace my "kit" lense. and I would like to have my new lense (17-35 2.8 always attached to either the D70 or the D200, and the real question is, should I keep the D200 with the 17-35 as my everyday walkaround or the 70-200 VR, or vice versa? And yes, much of the time I will be wearing both of them around my neck, and yes, already made my neck surgery appointment for about a year from now...lol. This question just really has me bugged.

2) Is the 17-35 2.8 better then the 17-55 2.8. Of course I know it is all in what you shoot, but I am looking for the "best" walk around general lense to keep attached always on either my new D200 or D70 and as I said before, the other camera would have the 70-200 VR always attached.

Thank you guys for helping on this.
