You're gonna love the 70-200 VRII. I upgraded from the VRI and am real happy I did. As sharp as my 400 VR and 600 VR. Hard to imagine. I also have the 85 1.4 but the old d version. If you wanna try something cool, the 200mm f/4 micro is also one of Nikon's sharpest lenses.

Two entirely different lenses. 14-24 = uwa effect on ff + much sharper than the 17-35. 17-35 was one of my first "pro" lenses but has been outclassed by many of the newer Nikkors, the 16-35 f/4 as a prime example. If you need to blow your bg's and you're close to your subject f/4 is ok. It's not f/2.8 but it's acceptable.

BTW, just shot some winter birds with the 600 VR + 1.4 tcII/F6 on Ektar 100.
Gonna try and get some scans up this weekend. Must say I'm real happy with the 5x7's I've seen so far.

Edit:
16-35 >>> 17-35 any day. Buying a LNIB 200 f/2 VR tomorrow here in Chi town, but the 16-35 and a used D700 are high on my to purchase list for walk arounds.

So is the D300s a replacement for your D300?

Me being me, I've had a 14-24 before. Never used it. I like my 12-24 more. 17-35 is more useful. And I don't think 17mm on FF is wide anymore... 17-35 was my first pro lens, I'm on my third now. I would love to be a PJ for 6 months, seems like something fun. And a 17-35 would be great for that.

And I am jelly for your 100 ZF.2, but that applies a lot more to the 200 VR.

.... I'm broke. After I work over the summer, I'm debating buying a gold bar as my first investment, or a nice lens. It's a tough choice.
