I can't get my head round which of these two lenses would be the best investment.
I'm currently using a D7000 and shoot theatre productions with a Tamron 17-50 (non VC). But this lens just isnt fast enough (AF) and oddly seems to produce more noise than my other nikon lenses when pushed.
I tend to fall back on my primes 35 1.8 DX, 50 1.4 & 85 1.8.
But as you can imagine this is causing me to have to swap lenses and miss shots.
My plan is to by a D800 in the next 6 months so I'm not sure weather to get the 24-70 as it would be more useful to have D800 + 24-70 and my D7000 with 80-200. Which would take advantage of the DX getting extra range and FX being wider.
Or go for D7000 + 17-55 and D800 with the 80-200. The 17-55 would be cheaper but only DX?
Can you guys think of any pro/cons ive missed? Or reasons to go either way?
