    you'll have your answer when you know what you like to shoot. Develop your own shooting style before you buy the lens.

    I have the 70-200 , 50mm , 85mm , what I would really want is a wide zoom.

    The 50 and 85 full the mid zoom just fine for me.

    Go wide especially on d7000 , I have both , d7000 and d7000 I really crave a wide for d7000

    My two cents worth.

    I have 17-35, 24-70, 70-200. My favorite is the 70-200 for portraiture but that's only because I don't have a 135DC or 85 f1.4 yet. Get the 24-70 if you want a good all purpose top-quality lens. Anything else will severely limit you until you do.



    Why don't you look at the 17-55? Unless you plan on going FX in the future, that'd be my goto lens. ;)

    The 17-55mm f/2.8 is the DX version the 24-70mm f/2.8. I'm not sure why you are comparing the 14-24 and the 24-70. Doesn't make any sense to me.
    I chose the 17-55 over the 24-70 because I could not live without the wide end. 24 is not wide enough on DX, though there are those that disagree.
    The 17-55 goes for around $1000 used.

    My personal feeling is that the 14-24 is wasted on a DX body. My DX f/2.8 kit is the Tokina 11-16, Nikon 17-55, and 70-200 VR1 - I use the Tokina less since getting the 17-55, but there are times when I like to go to 11mm.

    I just bought a D700, but rather than get rid of the 17-55, I will own a DX and an FX body from now on. When the D400 (or whatever it will be) is released, I will use the 17-55 and/or 70-200 on it and be a happy 2 body shooter. Now all I need to do is sell the Tokina (and a few other things) and buy the 17-35.
