I am planning to buy either the Nikkor AF-S 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED or the Nikkor AF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5D IF. The 24-85mm has a Silent Wave Motor and according to my understanding better optics, but the 28-105mm a larger focal length at the tele end, which is more important to me. I am not planning to use the lens I buy for just aviation photography.
What do you think of these two and which one would you recommend me to buy?
Apart from either of these I'm planning to buy a Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.8D.
