i got the 24-70 F2.8 and the 70-200 F2.8 VRII
both lenses combined were almost $4000.
best $4000 i've ever spent.
the 14-24 is next on my kill list - been buying up other toys for my 2 cars so i kind of put it off for now.
anyways, for $700 i'd get the 18-200 VRII every single time - no questions asked.
very nice on the wide end and zooms flawlessly to 200MM. the VRII is a dream come true and makes up for the fact that it's not a high end lens.
the Tokina 11-16 F2.8 is a great little lens also, BUT, you will definately miss getting those long shots.
i CANNOT fathom doing pohotography without shooting wide open at 2.8 at 200MM
