    haa time has come to buy some new toys! i've gotten sick of shotting with my 55-200 (yes, sadly its my only lens), and decided that i ned a new lens, or toys to make shooting less boring.

    so help me come up with a combo of toys, try to stay around 300-400 i guess

    50 f/1.8 -or- 35 f/1.8 DX
    ziekos grip for d90 (i have spare battery already)
    save a little more, tokina 11-16 or nikon 17-55 f/2.8's
    cybersyncs? with either one ab800 of maybe an sb28 or two used?

    im trying to come up with something that will do me well and keep me entertained until i can save up enough for some more toys. i want the versatility out of whatever i get, something i can use in many different situations. i like to shoot snowboarding/skateboarding/bmx alot, so i feel like the strobes could be fun there, but i want a new lens as well. would it make sense to sell my 55-200 and get something nicer until i can get a new tele?

    overall i'm just stuck on what to do, i want alot of stuff, but can only have a little :( haha. (my goal is to eventually have 11-16, 17-55, 70-200)

    thanks for any help!

    preferable under 400, if i go with the 11-16 or 17-55 i'll keep the money and save up.
