    Re: wide-to-short tele zoom choice?

    Very nice, that shot looks great! Glad you finally have a trio that meets your needs. Personal requirements are so important. What good is having a "better" piece of equipment if it's inconvenient to use? Best of luck and many happy clicks with the new lenses!

    Thanks, Dangerspouse.

    I learned the value of light weight and convenience when I bought my AF Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D. The images it makes are wonderful and I immediately appreciated the lens. But it is so heavy I sometimes shy away from carrying it. I tend to only reach for it when I want to get the best image quality I can. The much lighter, smaller 70-300mm goes in my bag for casual use.

    Some of these small and lightweight lenses might not give the same IQ as their bigger brothers, but I think it's sort of that deal where you 80% of the performance at 50% of the weight (and cost). The speed difference used to be an issue until my D750 and its sensor made that a lot less of a factor.

    Yes; I do enjoy having some top-of-the-line Nikkors, but those fast zooms are big, heavy and expensive. I'm only a third of the way toward finally acquiring a "holy trinity" but, in the mean time, I have my "handy trinity" of zooms and some very nice primes to keep me happy.
