    28-70/3.5-4.5 AFD is a sleeper and usually very affordable.

    Agree. That reminds me this zoom was my first zoom ever bought for my F80.

    I have used the Nikon 28mm to 200mm lens for years. The only alternative that I would suggest is the Tamron 28mm to 300mm lens which is comparable.

    An addition lens would be the Nikon 20mm to 35mm lens.

    I had the Nikkor 35-135 f/3.5 - 4.5D before. It's a NICE lens. Well built, reasonable amount of distortion, and relatively inexpensive. The negatives would be it's rather heavy and it only goes to 35mm on the wide side. Still, it's a pretty good lens.

    I sold mine when I bought 24-85 f/2.8 - 4D.

    Also be aware that any plastic Nikon bodies like the N70, N80, N90, etc. may have backs that are sticky, due to a coating they have on them. Scrubbing the back vigorously with isopropyl alcohol and something only mildly abrasive helps to neutralize and remove the coating. I say this because I just got an N70 in the mail off an APUG seller very inexpensively, and it had this tacky coating on it. It wasn't due to the seller's fault or any negligence in camera care -- it's a known issue with this series of Nikons.

    Get a 50mm even if you also get a wide range zoom. The speed, light weight and the image quality can't be beat. The nice bright image in the viewfinder is nice too.
