    B will be my choice.

    One thing, if you do a lot more wedding and portraits, you will probably need 2 more lenses:
    50/1.8 and 85/1.8.
    If your livelihood depends on weddings and portraits, forget the above 2 and get the following:
    50/1.4 and 85/1.4.

    Also, when you have enough money, you may want to consider dumping the 55-200VR and getting the 70-200/2.8.

    These are considering that you stay within DX format.

    ah.. thanks for the reply.. anyway, weddings and events or functions, i only take when my company needs me.. but still, to think of it, its quite often they have functions.. haha.. i'm more into landscapes and streetshots though..

    by the way, what do you think of nikon 16-85? thinking of teaming it up with tokina 11-16 and nikon 70-300.. what do u say?

    i personally like this 11-16, 16-85, and 70-300 more... but it's very personal...

    opinion is like a**hole... everyone got one...
