Buying a Lens

I received with 28-80G lens bundled with Nikon N80. Though results are OK but it does not operate smoothly and makes noise while zooming or focusing. As enthu photographer, should I go for 28-105D Nikon lens in its place, which I presume not very expensive? Or else 24-85D will be better.

  Hi Sunil: Some verrrry beautiful pictures! As for the 28-105 and 24-85 choice of zooms, they're very similar in that both go from wide to short telephoto. The choice, I think, involves what type of photography you do. Landscapes? Then you might like that 24-85, since it's a little wider. People? Then you may prefer a little extra in the telephoto range. Can't decide? Then go with the least-expensive lens!
Good luck! Kerry
PS: There may be an easy-to-fix problem with your 28-80 lens (or N80). You might want to have a repair shop look at it.
