Hi everyone. Years ago, while I was still in high school, Mom gave me her Minolta SLR that she had purchaced just after I was born. (The story goes she took about 15 rolls of film on a P&S before developing them and realizing the shutter was broken.) Anyway, it was a pretty nice setup: the body plus a 35mm f/2.8, a 50-200mm f/5.6 plus a teleconverter and a set of magnification filters. Had a pretty good time with it. Took a class my senior year with it and took some great B&W photos. (The school only had a B&W dark room, so that's what we did.) Anyhow, I kinda put the camera away when I realized how much it cost for developing. I was pretty poor at the time. Last summer a good friend's wife announced she was going to Hallmark to become a pro. A few weeks ago a friend of mine got a Pentax D20 (I think that's what it is). I decided that It was time to look into getting a DSLR. After some research I found what I thought to be a pretty good deal on a Nikon D60. So I've got my D60 with the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 VR kit lens. Having done some more research, I'm feeling like I bought the wrong camera. The whole AF-S restriction kinda sucks. But that's neither here nor there, I'll live with it. I'm looking around for lenses now. I miss having a prime, and a zoom with some length on it. I'm putting together a wish list. I really enjoy macro photography. I've always felt that there's a lot of beauty in the small stuff that people look at but don't see on any given day. I'm looking for feedback on the lenses I'm drooling over. This is the list, in the basic order I'm looking at getting them in. 1. Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G SIC SW Prime - Seems like a pretty good, very fast prime lens with a decent price tag. I'm aware that "you get what you pay for" so I'm trying not to cheap-out on glass. 2. Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom - Kind of slow, but as much as I'd love an f/2.8 or something close, price pretty much precludes it unless I can figure out how to make it pay for itself. At this point that's a long way down the road. 3. Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Micro - I'm not sure how I feel about the price. I'm also not sure that for a macro lens I really need an f/2.8. DoF is basically non-existant on my kit lens at 55mm f/5.6. I can only imagine what it would be like at 110mm 2.8. 4. Nikkor TC-20E II (2.0x) Teleconverter AF-S - I suppose that this in addition to my kit lens and/or the macro lens above would take the place of the 70-300, but that sucks if you're trying to capture something quickly. Any comments on these lenses would be appreciated. I've stuck with Nikkor only because I know that they make a decent lens, and I don't feel like dropping $500+ on a lens that turns out to suck. Thanks for reading.
