I have to say, I love my DA 12-24 for urban environment, but I also get a lot of use out of my Pentax-M 50 1.4.

It all depends on whether you "usually" like wide or telephoto or somewhere in between. Personally, I'd opt for the wide in NYC. You've got medium tele covered with the 28-75... unless you like close-ups and telephoto shots most in which you'll want something longer. But in a crowded environment, personally, I like wide and close.

Good advice reeftool; just buy the lens when you get there! If you don't like the first one you try, exchange it for a different model!

I second the advice on using an ordinary looking backpack that's a little bit dirty, not shiny-new.

Lets not forget Adorama down on 17th Street.

I also think you will want to go wider than 28mm. I love my Siggy 10-20, but one of the 10-24 or 12-24's would match up nice with your 28 - 75. Longer lenses are a specialty shot item in NY. (However there's no place better to buy one)
