Hi,

I'm using Nikon D80 and here are my current setup (I used to have 18-135 which I have just sold):
- Tokina 12-24 F4
- Nikon 24mm f2.8
- Nikon 50mm f1.8

I'm looking for any lens that is bigger than 24mm/50mm for the telephoto end. I was thinking to buy Nikon 55-200mm, but I don't know if I would miss anything from 24-50mm range. I was considering either 24-85 lens or 28-105 lens too, which is more to a walkabout lens.

Anyone can advise me on which lens to buy to cover the telephoto range of my setup?

Thanks! :)

What is your budget? If no budget, then can try,

24-70mm f2.8 VR II
70-200mm F2.8 VR II

And what do you want to shoot? If it was for birding, then you might want to look at at least 400mm lens.

Oh ya.. forgot abt the budget. My budget for this lens can't exceed $500.. and I dun want them for birding haha~ maybe more for walkabout.. shooting buildings, people, etc.. that's why I'm considering midrange zoom also and not necessarily a telephoto lens. :)

Oya, I missed out this lens. Yep, will consider this lens too :) Thanks!
Yeah 28-75mm is an excellent lens. But take note that it didn't have any image stabilizing (OS, VC, VR) in this lens... see if you are comfortable with that.
