D200 and 17-55 2.8 DX arrived within a hour of each other yesterday. Just finished reading the manual cover to cover. Do you think they could've made the print any smaller! I might have to upgrade to longer lenses in my eyes if they go any smaller. A couple of questions: What is the aperture "sweet spot" for the 17-55? Is the D200 light meter good enough to use without a separate light meter? Is it worth it to buy another SB800 for multiple strobe shots? I'll be shooting a lot of offshore fishing photos (50+ days a year) with the 17-55. How long would you think the 17-55 will last before the salt renders it useless? In the past, I would buy a cheaper lens for around $300-$400 and use it on my F4 until it was junk.
