Gonna be purchasing a D3000 here in the next week or two....been looking at another lens to pick up to compliment the 18-55. Budget for the lens is 200-300ish...so unfortunately it appears my options are slightly limited... I was thinking about the Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR...or the Nikon 50mm f/1.8...1.4 is a little out of my range, plus Im not sure Id really notice the faster lens at this point. Ive only really been looking at Nikon lenses, as I dont really know which third party brands to look at and which ones to avoid... Id like to be able to photograph some wildlife stuff and sports shots (mostly Hockey...). From what Im reading though this takes at least 300mm and that's definitely not within my budget! Thanks for any help!
