digital combination - Photography

What digital combination would give the equivalent of a 35mm slr with a 80 - 200 mm lens. I primarily shoot people walking in crowds. I was using a Nikon 35mm with a 80-200 zoom to isolate subjects. What is the digital equivalent / What would you recommend using to shoot people walking in digital?...

    My walk around combo is a Canon 10D with the 28 to 135 IS lens. That is
    the equivalent to about 45 to 215 on a 35mm film slr.

    You're working for the CIA? ;-)

    I did some similar shots with a Canon 20D with a 75-300mm which were quite
    ok.

    Kind regards

    80/1.5 - 200 /1.5 (ish, the crop sizes vary)
    50-133 (numerical answer)

    > What would you recommend using to shoot people walking in digital?
    For your somewhat remote approach, the Nikon 24-120 f/3.5-5.6 would fit pretty
    close but is not as fast as the 80-200 f/2.8's... it compensates somewhat with
    VR. I have no idea how competent this lens is optically, but the 5:1 zoom ratio
    suggestes it might not be terriby good.

    You might be better served by an 85 or 135 prime and crop from there.

    Cheers,
    Alan
