Alright so I'm using a D7000 and I'm looking for the best price/performance ratio lens between the 16-85mm VR vs. an 18-55mm VR + 35mm f/1.8. I like to shoot generally everything. Just any random thing that catches my eye. People, buildings, scenery, random flowers (no homo), FOOD that I eat.. etc.
does the 2mm make a noticeable difference? I know I have to look for myself, and I will do that when I get some people's input on if the 16-85 is good bang for the buck.
Now the thing is, I'm getting a 70-200mm VRII lens before the end of summer 2011, so I can't really spend all that much on lenses that'll overlap, which means no 18-105mm nor 18-200. I was also thinking of getting one of the two (18-55 or 35 1.8) and living with it till I get the 70-200. With the prime, I'll learn to place myself further/closer rather than using zoom to get the shot.
