    I'm finally upgrading my 5700 to a D100 - thanks for the advice in the
    past so now I'm after some extra tips from the pros in this forum...

    Some lenses I'm considering are.. (might get 1 or 2 of them dependeding
    on cost)

    Nikon 28-70mm f/2.8 ED-IF AF-S Zoom-Nikkor

    Nikon AF 28-200 f3.5-5.6G

    Nikon 80-200 f/2.8

    Nikkor 50mm f1.4 AF-D

    AF-S 17-35mm

    Some of my weekend work next year will be for the odd wedding or three,
    concerts, conferences and some junior action sports.

    Any advice and tips or suggestions on a fast, sharp all rounder lens
    would be most appreciated.

    Are you sure you are amateur?
    Looking from your wish list ... they look like semi pro stuff :)

    For wedding work .. hmm
    get the AFS 28-70 and AF 80-200 [<-- change this with the AFS 70-200 VR
    :D ].
    also a biggg flash :)

    I know a few ppl who shot good weddings using that setup only.

    Have you had a look at the Sigma AF 28-70 F2.8 Aspherical ? Tried it out
    on some Fuji S2's and they're great! especially for $971.49 (dirtcheap).

    You need to decide more firmly what you value. Optics or your money?

    The reason is the 28-70 and the 28-200 are miles apart in quality and price
    and speed.

    Have a go with the Nikon 24-120
    Its just a little soft at the top end, (after bout 110mm) but nothing too
    serious and heaps sharper than any 3rd party lens I have ever used. It is
    extremely versatile and well worth a look!
