    Macro Shooting - 105 / 200
    Landscape Shooting - 16-35 / 24-70

    Lidat can anot
    I support this approach, although don't have so many f/2.8 zooms or exotics like 135DC. And I like a wider (Sigma 10-20 or Tokina 10-17) and longer approach (80-200 or 70-300). Often I go macro with just 1 lens.

    I suppose it is nothing you want to do that you can't do with that.

    Yes when you are on one lens there is nothing else that matters!

    ya lor.. can only choose two.. else these will make a fearsome trio for landscape/archikectural photography.. any chance of ur favoring ur new "asset" over the 1st choice pair of 14-24 & 24 PC? replacing either one of them..

    Edit : i would have thought all 3 are indispensable.

    Actually the 16-35 is close of useless for archi/interior works for me due to the curvilinear distortions issue. I don't want to spend additional time correcting them and worse, risk having to re-shoot. That's why the 14-24 is still the mainstay. The 16-35 would be good for landscapes and some cityscapes where straight lines are not so critical or can be easily corrected.

    I would have thoght so..

    14-24 and 24 PC for ur line of work

    16-35 for those casual landscape/cityscape shoots.
    Actually @ 16mm, it makes a gd semi fisheye @ times..

    Nikkor 10-24mm only. This is the lens I bring out the most and I find most versatile. I can bring this out without anything else.

    The other lens I will being out very often is the kit Nikkor 18-105mm, and will couple it with a prime or telezoom depending on what I have in mind to shoot, or with the 10-24mm.
