    My favorite kit is 24mm f/2.8, 35mm f/2.0 and 85mm f/2.0.

    It is tiny, and the results are much to my liking. I consider the 35mm lens as my standard lens (I have two of them).

    My only complaint - the filter sizes differ. The 24mm and 85mm have 49mm threads, while the 35mm uses 55mm threads.

    As to the 75mm - 150mm f/4.0, I have one, and like it, but don't use it that much. It is a two touch zoom, and it is very small.

    I am not sure that the zoom has the greatest reputation, but I have never been unhappy with the results, and the prices are very reasonable.

    Thanks for the input guys. I've narrowed it down to the 28/2.8 and 100/2.8, but will probably get the 100/2.8 first since I find myself wanting a longer lens more often than a wider one. Besides, if I think I'll need the wider view, I can always take my N80 and it's 24/2.8.

    Thanks again.

    You have probably answered your own question. I think what each of us decides to use is entirely dependent on our own goals, it's about what *you* want to capture. No-one else can really tell you.

    BTW I wouldn't consider the 100/2.8 to be inferior to the 85/2 in everyday use, in fact I sometimes find the 85mm isn't a big enough step from 50mm.

    Simon.
