I've rid myself of the AF-S 80-200 f/2.8D even though it served me well for the last year.  I could never achieve sharpness that I wanted with shots at longer focal lengths, even stopped down.  It was a fun lens to use when things were farther away (and it wasn't important to have perfect sharpness) but most of what I shoot is portraits and so ideally I should be using lenses suited to portraiture... and I like primes.  

In it's place, I now own the AF DC Nikkor 135mm f/2D and my next planned lens is the AF Nikkor 180mm f/2.8D.  After that I will update my primes one at a time over the course of the next few years.  

My primary shoot lenses will now be:

AF 24mm f/2.8D (Eventually would like to upgrade to 24mm f/1.4G)
AF-S 50mm f/1.8G (Keeping this, the f/1.4 version doesn't give me much benefit.)
AF 85mm f/1.8D (Would like to upgrade to 85mm f/1.8G or f/1.4G since both are awesome)
AF DC 135mm f/2D (Hopefully will last a lifetime :)

And my walk around / do everything lens will be:

AF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5D (Wide to short tele zoom range, and 1:2 Macro ability... it's the best single lens kit you could ask for :)

I went with the 135 DC because of it's reputation for amazing bokeh and good sharpness.  It's an old design but there are a large number of people that still happily use this lens today and love it.  I'm hoping to become the next on this list!

Did we take any not-so-tree-like pictures with my Vanellope cosplay last year?
