Sorry I haven't monitored this . . . all these goofy zooms, I'm having a hard time keeping them straight and I really don't like zooms much at all. But I need something like this for the family snaps, right? Right?

Most of the suggestions above are G lenses, I believe except the 28-105 f/3.5 and the 24-85 afd, correct?

Anyway, Ralph, if I decide to pursue the 24-85 lens, I'll PM you about it. Care to share your evaluation of it?
