I've been seriously looking at buying a Nikon D70s. I'd been looking at the package with the 18-70mm kit lens. I generally like having a larger zoom range if I can, so I was considering a larger lens. The thing is, I have a tight budget right now... so if I'm going to get a larger lens... it's in lieu of the kit lens. Anyone have any input? This seems like a nice all around starter lens for this camera, and not one I'd mind having in general... it's just a money issue. Anyone know any good places to get lenses inexpesively? I'd love to have something like an 18-200 or more. Budget seems to be the limiting factor in everything. heh. Also, if anyone has any tips no picking lenses, it's been a while since I've bought a lens... last time I got one... focal length and fstops were the only concerns because I had only manual focus to worry about (this was on my Pentax K1000).
Any advice greatly appreciated.
Only after disaster can we be resurected. It's only after you've lost everything, that you're free to do anything. Nothing is static, everything is evolving, everything is falling apart.
