    Nikon AF 28-200 f3.5-5.6G

    Are you sure you are amateur?
    Looking from your wish list ... they look like semi pro stuff :)

    For wedding work .. hmm
    get the AFS 28-70 and AF 80-200 [<-- change this with the AFS 70-200 VR
    :D ].
    also a biggg flash :)

    I know a few ppl who shot good weddings using that setup only.

    Have you had a look at the Sigma AF 28-70 F2.8 Aspherical ? Tried it out
    on some Fuji S2's and they're great! especially for $971.49 (dirtcheap).

    Sigma lens? I'd probably rather stick with a nikon/nikkor - but if
    enough ppl say that the Sigma is worth a shot - them I'm all for it.

    I'm an amateur photographer - but a professional in another field - so
    I got lucky with a few contracts.... all I need now is the right
    equipment... :)

    My budget is around 5-6K - this might not be enough at first but I'll
    just keep on adding more stuff as the workload increases...

    So for 5K (inc the body) - which would be the best lens to get, would
    also like to get the Grip with any leftover $.

    You need to decide more firmly what you value. Optics or your money?

    The reason is the 28-70 and the 28-200 are miles apart in quality and price
    and speed.

    Have a go with the Nikon 24-120
    Its just a little soft at the top end, (after bout 110mm) but nothing too
    serious and heaps sharper than any 3rd party lens I have ever used. It is
    extremely versatile and well worth a look!

    The 24/120 (36/180) is nore practical on the D100 plus you may need a
    shorter lens than that 18/35 (27/52)

    BTW I have a surpluss 24/120

    or look for Tokina lenses - I have several for my Nikon kit, and have
    been very impressed.

    Tokina, btw, are the manufacturers of many of the current Nikon
    lenses, using Nikkor glass. for their own tokina branded lenses they
    use Hoya glass, but almost identical body & mechanics.

    That's what i'm like normally, but several pro wedding/grad shooters i
    know who are normally 'nothing but nikon' bought a few of these and were
    very impressed with them.

    I'll see if i can post some test shots with this lens.
