A "prosumer" Nikon set-up

Webtrance
The list author says: "I've managed to limit my Nikon shooting set-up to basically three lenses and a flash. Those are the 10-24, 16-85, and 70-300VR. Finally, I also sometimes carry the 35 1.8 and 50 1.8 just in case."
Nikon D7000 DSLR (Body Only)
Nikon D7000 DSLR (Body Only)
"Much improved over the legendary D90.  For me, IQ is a notch above the already sharp D90, though the D7000 will make any lens shine.  Ergonomics, speed, improved sensor and ISO capabilities makes for the best camera in the DX line-up.  Between this and the D300s...get the D7000!"

Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Auto Focus-S DX Nikkor Wide-Angle Zoom Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras
"See my review of this outstanding lens and you'll see why I selected it rather than the Nikon 12-24, Tokina 12-24, Tamron 10-24, or Sigma 10-20. It's an amazing lens capable of striking images!"

Nikon 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX ED VR Nikkor Wide-Angle Telephoto Zoom Lens for Nikon DSLR Cameras
"The best DX lens and most versatile in my opinion.  Why settle for less?  It resolves images better than the 18-105VR.  Please see my review of this lens and why I choose it over the Nikon 17-55 f/2.8."

Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED IF AF-S VR Nikkor Zoom Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras
"Superb Lens!  Please see my review on that as well.  It's one of the sharpest lenses in my bag, and that's against the Nikon 16-85 and 10-24.  It's truly capable of producing high resolution and clear images.  It's a superb lens for DX such as my D90.  Check it out!"

Nikon 2137 50mm f/1.8D Auto Focus Nikkor Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras
"My first lens after the Nikon 18-105.  I found the Nikon 18-105 too soft and this lens just blows it away!  It's a fantastic portrait lens on DX.  All the great reviews can't be wrong.  Grab it for sure because it could be the sharpest, clearest, and least expensive lens in your bag!"
