    I have a budget of up to $250 to buy a new lense for my D70, I am looking to see what you guys recommend and then go from there to choose.

    Thanks.

    Can you tell us what are you planning to use the lens for? i.e. taking landscape photos? Portrait? Macros stuff like bugs? or Telephotos type such as going to the zoo? .......

    either way $250 max isn't going to get very much...

    buy the nikor 50mm 1.8 prime for $125 and spend the change on a bag of crack...

    Thats the thing I can't really decide which I prefer, I love macros, and I enjoy landscapes and portraits. Which would be the most practical?
