Hello, I'm looking to buy Nikon's 24-70mm or 70-200mm, I have very equal uses for both of them but I'm going to buy one of them first. The other one will probably be bought 8-12 months later. I'm shooting portraits, events, dance, stage productions, some sports, and stuff thats happening locally. With the 24-70 I'll be able to do group shots, but with the 70-200 I wont. Although with the 24-70, I wont be able to get candid shots as easily and it doesn't have very good reach for the stage and sports. Such a headache. **EDIT** And I also have to consider the new or old version of the 70-200mm.
