As I posted before, I have some old nikkor lenses that have been modified for use on a DSLR.

However, for everyday shooting, I would like to invest in a zoom lens. I've narrowed down to two options:

1. Two lenses: 24-120 f3.5-5.6G VR and 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR, or

2. One lens: Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR.

I primarily shoot for web photos for my Earth/Space education website.

Again for reference, I have the 50mm 1.4 VR, and manual (1970 era) 50/1.4, 24/2.8, and 200/f4.

Thanks for the advice. I am fussy about my photos, and with this investment in the D700, do not want to end up growling..
