Let's talk a bit about an old Frances Schultz reader assignment in Shutterbug Magazine from the mid nineties.
If you had just three prime lenses to shoot with for a week, what would they be?
My choices then were the 24/2.8AI, 35/2.0 O-Nikkor AI'd and the 105/2.5 AI on a pair of FE2-s, one with Ilford HP5 and the other with Agfachrome 21.
Today my choices would be the 24/2.8AF-D, the same old 35 and the 85/1.8AF-D on a D700.
On DX I would probably try using the 24AF, a 50/1.8AF-D and an old MicroNikkor 105/4.0AI.
Frances Schultz herself wrote about shooting Prague in a week on assignment for National Geographic with a 24, a 35PC and a 105/1.8 in the next issue of Shutterbug if I remember correctly
