I presume you are talking about using digital ...

If 28mm, still OK for walk ard, but I feel the lense may not be wide enuf.

the 70-210 is a good lense but then again, the range may be too long for street/general shooting.

y don't you consider getting a 18-70 and a 70-210 ? I feel this two lenses combined has a more usable range. Either that or, if you don't mind spending a little more, get the 18-200 VR, a good and light travel lense. saves u the hassle of changing lenses too.

Just my 2 cents ...

General and Street photography, best to use 18-200 where it gives you al the range you need.

a 70-210 is a pretty long range IMO for street. Sometimes you need wide,sometimes you need tele.

I have a friend who's got the 28-105, works pretty well, although he himself has the 18-70.

I'm not sure whether you would like to use in Digital or Film camera.

If you will use it in film camera, this 28-105 has a good walk around lens + Macro (but not 1 to 1).
So it's very useful in street / travel photography.

Now if you use in the digital camera, 28-105 will become 42-157.5 , you will lost it's wideangle.
For digital cam you can use 18-70 as a walk around (minus Macro) lens.

Now if you compare 28-105 with 70-200,
You are comparing between street zoom (normal zoom) to a Medium Long zoom,
both can be use for street photography, depend on you style and what you need.

So it's come back to your photography style.

Just 2 cents :)

Umm, unless my interpretation of street photography is wrong, you may have misunderstood the advice given above. Eg. both stinky and metal are saying that the 70-210 is too long, and I agree ... wide angles are more useful for general walk-around photography.

Unless, of course, your street photography closely mirrors paparazzi-style ambush-from-behind-bush-across-the-street :bsmilie:

Seriously, even for general usage the 70-210 is too long.

I use the 28-105mm in conjunction with a 24mm. Both work well on film and digital for me.

It depends on your style, and the 28-105mm has a macro function, which makes it much more versatile than the rest of the medium zooms.

I love the 28-105mm macro Nikon lens. The range is good, the macro function is excellent and the sharpness, particularly at f8 to f11 is second-to-none.

Buy it!
