    Wow, thanks guysI I want to respond to each of you. I am going to check out the Tamron's as well as, kerbouchard the Nikkor as recommended. I selected those 6 as finals because I know they all have macro capability as well as low light/fixed apertures. They vary slightly in terms of maxiumum and minimum focal length, as you know. Knowing that going awith a few of them would be a good choice is reassurring. I've got kids to put through school so "pissing" away 400-500$, although I have credit, is hard for a mom to do without knowing that it is at least for a product I'm confident in and that I'm hoping I won't have to re-sell if I don't like and lose money on. I'm thinking of eventually picking up a prime wide angle, but that will be later on. I rarely need a wide angle. How is the "bokeh/DOF" in these lenses?

    ...not sure where in NY you are,but if your in the central NY area (Syracuse),try Ra-Lins........very friendly...you can play with glass in store,or you can rent on very good terms...they consider fri-sun 1 day.As far as a nearest camera store being 40 min. away...that wouldn't even enter my mind if i was spending $4-500...i do that everyday 1 way to go to work.........

    35-70 is useless on dx as a midrange zoom, ur going from normal to mild tele. Might as well get a prime.It's true they will loose their value, so buy used!!! It's a third party dx lens, get one from keh, u even get a 6mnth warranty.

    There are no wide angle primes for dx, or atleast they are not worth it for dx. Only zooms currently, but they are worth it.
