    The Nikkor 50mm is hard to beat for the money. It also has the added benefit to make YOU move to get the composition rather than relying on a zoom. It makes a great learning lens without a significant investment.

    I am just going to ditto kundalini. The 50mm is a must for any camera bag.

    Why not a Sigma 18-50 f/2.8 or something similar? I don't know about you, but I can't keep up with most dogs. :lol:

    rental is always an option, this inexpensive way you get to try them first before investing.
