    When you are traveling the lighter the better this is a very small, compact and fast lens from Nikon full frame standard zoom range which is adequate for most of your daily needs. The 24-70mm f2.8 is better a bit bulky and heavy for use as a travel lens. It's will be okay if you don't have many other things to carry.
    Awesome choice...

    Best if you have 2 bodies

    The best travel lens on a FX body is the new AF-S 18-35mm for me, lightweight and nice range.

    Thanx..
    Also good when capturing video clips with the very smooth focus ring. I am also happy with the result when reversing the lens for macrophotography.

    Inside my traveling bag: d7000 with 50mm 1.8AIS +reverse ring and18-105 kit lens.

    Duh I was on a kind note of replying. Not being saarcastic.

    I used to use the 7000. Sold off earlier as I knew the price will drop like hell.
    Now with 600 and maybe get a 7100 in near future. A 1.5x and 1.3x crop is nice with 70 200.

    Well I brought both the D600 and D7000 to Sydney last quarter of 2012. A 18-200dx for my D7000, 24-70 f2.8 for my D600.
    Know it's kinda overkill but the D7k I lent to a friend so I just take the 24-70 around with me.

    I was telling you that the guy you quoted was being sarcastic, not that *you* are sarcastic. Please try to comprehend what you read before replying. If it was directed at you, I would have said "you" and not "he".
