In the last 3 months I've been fortunate enough to get a D700. Most of my shots are done in low light - Church, gyms, inside the house, dusk & dawn, etc.

The f1.2 50m would seem to be a good next lense, but with the crispness that is produced by the 24-70 f2.8 at mid high ISO settings (1250-3000) I'm beginning to wonder. Is there a benefit, even a subtle increase in quality, to the 50m over the 24-70 when the noise is almost non-existant with the 2.8? Crispness is an issue because some of these shots will be enlarged to 24 X 30 or larger. Also, I do amost no PP on any shots, so as a rule the image captured is the image.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
